The summer of 1917.

Britain is losing the war against the deadly German U-boats

After a close fought action, Commander David Smith uncovers what he believes is a deadly plot against Britain from a dying German sailor. Code-named SchwerttrZiger - or Swordbearer - it could turn the tide of the war in Germany's favour.

But nobody will listen to him.

He is under suspicion, and ignored.

With just one one ancient destroyer, a turtle-back 'thirty-knotter' known as 'Bloody Mary', under his command, he must wage this battle on his own.

Smith has to take on shore batteries and bigger, faster enemy destroyers. He has to fight the hostility of his commanding officer and is plunged into a world of espionage behind enemy lines. Through it all the mystery behind `Schwerttriiger' lures him on - until he stakes his career and his life in a desperate attempt to solve it.

Ship of Force is an edge-of-the-seat WWI naval adventure that combines thrilling story-telling with meticulous research.

HASH(0x9ed0da3c) von 5 Sternen Some of the best novels in this genre 12. August 2013
Von OZARKFLIER - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I started Reading Alan Evans' books recently, long after they were published. Taking a chance on the first one, THUNDER AT DAWN, I was delighted to discover it to be a very well written, tightly woven story. Since that time, I have also read DAUNTLESS, SHIP OF FORCE, and SEEK OUT & DESTROY, which are all set in World War I. He has also written AUDACITY in this series, plus several other novels that take his major protagonist into World War II, and I plan to read them, too.

Having read a great many novels in the 20th century naval fiction genre, I must rate Evans' books as some of the best. His protagonist, Royal Navy Commander David Cochrane Smith, is a somewhat enigmatic but very sincere character. Evans makes the naval venues more interesting by framing his stories in the not too well-known backwaters of World War I: off the Pacific coast of South America in THUNDER AT DAWN, in the Mediterranean near modern day Israel in DAUNTLESS, in an area of the English Channel then known as the Dover patrol in SHIP OF FORCE, and finally, in Gulf of Venice at the Northern tip of the Adriatic Sea in SEEK OUT & DESTROY. Since he's not altogether popular with his superiors in the British naval hierarchy, Smith often gets assigned to operations that possess a high risk of failure. But unlike many novels where the main character tends to prevail out of sheer bravado, Smith manages to survive by using his wits. The plotting is excellent, taking twists and turns that leave the reader guessing about the fate of Smith and his crew all the way up to the very end.

Readers who enjoy stories by contemporary naval fiction authors such as Douglas Reeman, Alexander Fullerton, and Phillip McCutchan will love these books because they have richer, more believable characters and better plot lines. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x9ed16a8c) von 5 Sternen Well done naval fiction 20. März 2014
Von Neil - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
As a retired naval captain, I found this book and its companions to be very interesting reads concerning WWI naval combat which is under represented in naval fiction. It's an interesting period when warships were now all steel, steam propelled, heavily armed and armored, but still confined to line of sight engagements. I really found very little to quibble about as to realism.
The hero is a commoner from the wrong side of the tracks which is somewhat unusual in the Royal Navy's officer corps even today and must have been more so in this post-Victorian period.

The Rules of the Game is a history book that chronicles the RN leading up to and during WWI, the author categorizes naval officers as either "regulators" who prize highly polished brass work and tidy personnel programs or "rat catchers", the Nelsonian tacticians. The hero is a rat catcher which stands him out from his peers.

If you enjoy naval fiction, you'll like these.

Well done historical naval fiction. Just the kind of stuff I like. More please.
HASH(0x9ed16ab0) von 5 Sternen The protagonist is pretty one-dimensional, as are his opposing characters 28. August 2015
Von obgraham - Veröffentlicht auf

This book was apparently published in the '70's, and just now is making it as an e-book. The writing style is not really modern.

I very nearly gave up on this book. It starts slowly, and I just couldn't see where it was going. The protagonist is pretty one-dimensional, as are his opposing characters. It's the old story of the military man who's real smart, but all his superiors don't realize it yet. But then about a third in, things got spicier. The action picks up, and the sea fighting action is intense, violent, and almost nonstop as the story reaches its climax. I can't imagine what it must have been like to be involved in naval battles once modern ships and gunnery made their appearance in the early 20th century, but the author has me experiencing all the terror and suspense of the battles.

Well done, and recommended to anyone who likes naval military stories, and likes the price: $1.00!

This book also has one other unique feature: the author uses the word "bawl" (as in yelling or hollering) more than any other book I've ever seen. All this time I thought bawling was what my granddaughter does when she's upset, but apparently not!
HASH(0x9ed1aa80) von 5 Sternen I liked the setting 27. August 2015
Von TAFFMANN - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Only read the first two in the series so far......
I liked the setting...the writing style gets the reader involved......but

Lets face it...the central character 'Smith'....the Naval Officer who is a 'round peg for a square hole'.....not excepted or trusted by the Admiralty....England, Class ridden blah blah blah....exiled to an old Armoured Cruiser patroling off Chile
Smith sinks 2 German Colliers masqurading as neutrals....which buggers up the German victualing plan for 2 inbound modern armoured cruisers....sinks the two cruisers....well...he would have been the poster boy of the Empire...his subsequent life and career 'Gravy'
2nd Book....The Admirals.....'We still don't like you Smith'....have two more crappy ships and a clown as a Boss....sinks a U Boat on his first night operation off Belguim......If I was Smith I would have ran aground off Germany and surrendered with hands up proclaiming 'Why do i bother'...
Come on..................? Old author though...back in the 70's I think
