Published in 1977, 1975, and 1980, respectively, these are the first three installations in Kent's ongoing series of the adventures of protagonist Richard Bolitho. The plots follow Bolitho's various exploits in the Royal Navy in the late 19th century. McBooks will eventually reprint all 23 Bolitho novels. (c) Copyright 2010.
