Nota de desambiguació
aka David Andreissen



This is the 22nd book in the author's Dan Lenson series but it was my first one read. Even so, I was easily able to get situated, with ease, in the series and enjoy it.

I love reading nonfiction about the service academies, as well as the occasional fictional work. This is one of the best service-academy novels I've ever read.

A real page turner full of nonstop action. Absolutely loved it.

I especially loved how the author alternated scenes between Midshipman Dan and Admiral Dan.

Though military thrillers aren't my usual thing, I've picked up the first book in the series and hope to read through them all.

Highly recommended!!

(I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Net Galley, in exchange for a fair and honest review.)

I never received my copy that I won in a GOODREADS giveaway back on Sep 12, 2017. I've reached out with no response. Sadly, I need to clear my reading queue & shall assign a 1 star rating. I was excited to have won & looked forward to reading. If I ever receive it, I'll read & post corrected review.

Started slowly and was rather formulaic but improved significantly by the end. I will try the next one in the series.

Lt Clairbourne commits to his home state, Virginia, and is off to war. First, as an artillerist supporting the army, then as the commander of Confederate commerce raiders. He is extreme/y successful until he engages in a fight to the finish with one of the USN cruisers sent out to run him down. Good insights into the struggles of individuals as they are forced to take sides in this War Between the States.
