DUDLEY POPE Ramage and the Renegades. For Kyle and Doc. Author's note. Still uninhibited, it belongs to Brazil. It was first surveyed by Captain Philip D'Auvergne . Prince of Bouillon in 1782 and his original chart, in the British Museum, shows he made an error of only about twenty-five miles in plotting its position.

The Times and the Morning Post were delivered early that morning and Hanson brought them in on a silver salver, offering the Earl his choice icholas. The Countess pushed back her chair and stood up. You men will want to read your papers. Gianna wishes to visit her dressmaker again, so unless you want it, John, we’ll use the carriage. Good Heavens! the Earl muttered. Sit down a moment dea. oes the Post mention this? he said to Nicholas without raising his head

Dudley Bernard Egerton Pope (29 December 1925 – 25 April 1997) was a British writer of both nautical fiction and history, most notable for his Lord Ramage series of historical novels. Greatly inspired by . Forester, Pope was one of the most successful authors to explore the genre of nautical fiction, often compared to Patrick O'Brian. Dudley Pope was born in Ashford, Kent. By concealing his age he joined the Home Guard aged 14 and at age 16 joined the merchant navy as a cadet

Dudley Pope is well known both as the creator of the Ramage novels and as a distinguished naval historian. The fact that the Ramage series uses the same cast of characters throughout the 12 books I have read makes you a "rooter" for them. You fear for them in action even though you know that probably no great harm will come to them (after all, they have 6 more books to get through!). There is less self plagiarism in this book then previous books I have read because there is not a lot of "sailing" action.

Another in the Pope's series of Naval warfare in the Napoleonic era, and like most of his works, small ship action. No massive fleets against one another but very likable and interesting characters and enough action and romance to make the read very easy and enjoyable. The fact that the Ramage series uses the same cast of characters throughout the 12 books I have read makes you a "rooter" for them. You fear for them in action even though you know that probably no great harm will come to them (after all, they have 6 more books to get through!).

There is less self plagiarism in this book then previous books I have read because there is not a lot of "sailing" action. But this one has a new love interest and twists that make it one of the best of the series.

On to the next Ramage!

In my estimation, this is one of Pope's best. After the war with France has come to a truce, Ramage is sent on a routine surveying expedition to the island of Trinidade off the east coast of South America, events turn into a complex and complicated strategy to rescue a host of captured ships and passengers from pirates. To say more would give the story away, but suffice it to say that Ramage is put through 'the ringer' once again. On to book #13. JCY

For readers of the Ramage series this is a critical volume. Captain Lord Ramage finally realizes that marriage to his long-time love, the Marchesa of Volterra, is not going to happen.
A fragile peace has come to Europe. The Marchesa has decided to return to Italy despite the fact her enemy Napoleon still rules there. Ramage is off to the American Tropics again on a secret mission to survey a South Atlantic island. He finds a mix of surprising, deadly, and lovely discoveries. The novel is very slow starting. It focuses on people more than action. An unprecedented amount of informal conversation between crew and captain is a hallmark of this series, but this volume is more reliant than usual on dialogue and repartee. This story is best for how Ramage has to deal with civilians on his desert isle, and with the Marchesa, the IDEA of the Marchesa, and with a new woman in his life. This is almost a romance novel for men. For once his fierce reputation works against him, as he is manipulated by pirates.
As usual the writing is smooth, although a great stretch of the book lacks the tension of others due to it being peace time. Pope makes use of an expedition artist to describe the beauty of tropical skies and waters. You'll find interesting vignettes on shipyards, the Hydrographic Office ("Who knows, one day we might be able to print our own charts..."!), the despicable peace treaty of Amiens, shipboard chaplains, ship's books, and tropical clouds. An excellent map is included.

Very entertaining read. I have now read most of this series and continue to enjoy them. They are not a detailed or as filled-out as O'Brien's Aubrey/Maturin series, but still a fun read.
