    One thought on “The Only Victor”

    1. La serie Bolitho se agota, cada vez más lastrada por historias de amor que acuden a clichés que no aportan más calidad a la historia. Después de varios años sin tocar los libros de Kent me he decidido a terminar la serie y después de leer los tres libros anteriores en poco más de una semana noto un bajón de calidad según se acerca el fin de la serie.

    2. In Alexander Kent's Bolitho series, the development of the characters is every bit as important as the descriptions of naval battles, life aboard ship, etc. This is particularly true of this, the 20th in the Bolitho series.The time is February, 1806, less than six months after the victory at Trafalgar. Despite, and because of that battle, which caused damage to so many British ships, England still faces a dangerous foe in France, where Napoleon's armies continue their victories.This novel, which [...]

    3. Not my favorite in this series. Came bound with a much earlier one in the sequence so it jumped years ahead of last one read, to when Bolitho is a vice admiral and his nephew a captain. The romance part of it didn't work very well.

    4. Good But disjointed. Scenes changed so frequently, I was unsure where I was. I almost gave up reading.lly finished after several breaks.
