Overview

Great naval action and deep historical detail in the vein of O Brian and Forester. "Kirkus Reviews "(starred review)

In Dewey Lambdin's "Kings and Emperors, "Captain Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy, is still in Gibraltar, his raids along the coast of southern Spain shot to a halt. He is reduced to commanding a clutch of harbor defense gunboats in the bay while his ship, HMS "Sapphire, " slowly grounds herself on a reef of beef bones Until Napoleon Bonaparte s invasion of Portugal and his march into Spain change everything, freeing "Sapphire" to roam against the king s enemies once more

As kings are overthrown and popular uprisings break out across Spain, Lewrie s right back in the action, ferrying weapons to arm Spanish patriots, scouting the impregnable fort of Ceuta, escorting the advance units of British expeditionary armies to aid the Spanish, and even going ashore to witness the first battles between Sir Arthur Wellesley, later the Duke of Wellington, and Napoleon s best marshals, as the long Peninsular War that broke Imperial France begins to unfold.

From Cadiz to La Coruna, Lewrie and "Sapphire" will be there as history explodes "
