Naval officer turns privateer in this thrilling historical adventure 1783: officer and rogue Alan Lewrie becomes His Majesty’s secret agent. Fresh from war in the Americas, Lewrie finds London pure pleasure. Then, at Plymouth, he boards the trading ship Telesto to find out why merchantmen are disappearing in the East Indies. Between the pungent shores of Calcutta and teaming Canton, Lewrie – reunited with his scoundrel father – discovers a young French captain, backed by an armada of Mindanaon pirates, on a plundering rampage. While treaties tie the navy's hands, a King's privateer is free to plunge into the fire and blood of a dirty little war on the high South China Sea.

Forester. This collection of fifteen of his Alan Lewrie Naval Adventures follows Lewrie, Royal Navy, from his days as a midshipmen to captain of his own ship and, though on somewhat dubious grounds, a baronetcy.

The year 1807 starts out badly for Captain Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy. In The King's Marauder, his frigate HMS Reliant has a new captain, he's living at his father's estate at Anglesgreen, among spiteful neighbors and family, and he's recovering from a wound suffered in the South Atlantic. At last, there's a bright spot. When fit, Admiralty awards him a new commission; not a frigate but a clumsy, slow two-decker Fourth Rate 50. Are his frigate days over for good? Lewrie's ordered to Gibraltar, but Foreign Office Secret Branch's spies and manipulators have use for him, again! HMS Sapphire is the wrong ship for the task, raising chaos and mayhem along the Spanish coasts, and servicing agents and informers. And, what he's ordered to do needs soldiers, landing craft, and a transport ship, all of which he doesn't have, and must find a way to finagle it all. He could beg off and say that it's asking too much, but . . . Alan Lewrie is not a man to admit failure and defeat, and his quest might prove the most daunting of his long naval career. For fans of historical fiction, Dewey Lambdin's Alan Lewrie series ranks alongside such greats as Patrick O'Brian and C.S. Forester for its terrific period detail and irresistible hero.

The first Alan Lewrie Naval Adventure: the ultimate man of adventure, worthy of Hornblower and Aubrey, his exploits echo with the sounds of crowded ports and the crash of naval warfare.

Forced into a life at sea, he must leave his frivolous life behind. A shock awaits him onboard the tall-masted Ariadne, where sea-sickness and hard work will be the least of his problems. But – much to his surprise – he finds himself adapting to his new life. As midshipman Lewrie heads for the war-torn Americas and into a hail of cannonballs, will he discover the plot against him brewing at home?

Epic sea battles abound in this historical naval adventureAlan Lewrie is now commander of his own ship, HMS Jester, which participates in the spectacular British victory over the French at the famous battle known as The Glorious First of June. From there Lewrie is dispatched to the Mediterranean to inform Admiral Hood of the French defeat. Under Hood's inspired leadership, Lewrie assists in the conquest of Corsica, but Hood is soon replaced by the maddeningly cautious Admiral Hotham. Only alongside one Horatio Nelson (not yet an admiral) does Lewrie again find his chance to be of service in a series of fierce battles along the French coast. And it is along that same coast that he hears once again of an old enemy, the French commander Guillaume Choundas, and knows that destiny will soon bring their ships together.

Jenseits von Rhein und Main stehen die römischen Legionen. Auriane, Tochter eines germanischen Chattenfürsten, ist eine große Schwertkämpferin. Ihr war eine bedeutende Zukunft geweissagt worden. Aber beim Kampf gegen die Römer werden die Chatten geschlagen, Auriane gefangen und nach Rom verschleppt. Viele Themen streift die Autorin Donna Gillespie in ihrem großen historischen Roman. Vom aufkeimenden Christentum mit seinen für Römer und Germanen gleichermaßen befremdlichen Sitten über die Traditionen der Priester und Seher in Germanien bis hin zum Alltagsleben im hektischen Rom, der viel zu schnell wachsenden Hauptstadt des Imperiums. Ein Schicksal zwischen zwei völlig verschiedenen Welten. (Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine frühere Ausgabe.)
