Book Summary of By Force Of Arms

The first in the enthralling Revolution at Sea series

As the War of Independence begins in earnest, American merchant seamen prepare to strike the first blows. None strikes more deftly than Isaac Biddlecomb, captain of the Judea, whose smuggling activities are making a mockery of His Majesty's Royal Navy. Pursued by the HMS Rose, he sacrifices the ship he loved to the depths, together with the fortune he stood to gain, rather than surrender.

On the run from the enraged forces of King George, Isaac disguises himself as a merchant seaman. He is reunited with Ezra Rumstick, a comrade and fierce rebel, as the revolution gathers momentum. On a brig bound for Jamaica, and now serving as a lowly mate, fate tests Isaac's mettle as he is captured by the enemy and faces a life of servitude under the deranged captain and sadistic crew of the HMS Icarus

Ricardo June 01, 2012 review from Goodreads

A bit slow to start with, but quite fast and exciting toward the end. Nowhere as good as C.S. Forester or Patrick O'Brian, but it's still a fun read if you like the genre.

Jallioop September 09, 2011 review from Goodreads

Really enjoyed this one. Nice to have Isaac Biddlecomb, a fictional American nautical hero who can stand alongside the usual British heroes (Hornblower, Ramage, et al). Better than the first Thomas Marlowe book by the same author - I think I'll stick with the Isaac Biddlecomb series instead. Very...

Mary February 19, 2013 review from Goodreads

I really enjoyed this book. Being a fan of Patrick O'Brian and C.S. Forester, it was great to find a modern writer who could capture the same sense of adventure with a novel set in the early United States. I've got book #2 on order!
