About William Bertram

Within these novels, although conflict and warfare abound, these books try to look beyond the fighting into the mind and intentions of our hero. It is consequently left to the reader to gain an insight into our hero's future actions by examining the minutia of his daily life along with his interaction among the other characters and any national and local events occurring around that time. Do not buy these novels if you want blood on every page, these books are essentially written for the naval history buff who has read around this subject. I would however, recommend them to a new recruit to the Georgian naval novel who desires total immersion in that period.
