Comments The Power and the Glory

  • Cathy Helms

    Fantastic continuation of William C. Hammond's 'Age of Sail' series! The sea battles were particularly engaging as told through the eyes of Richard Cutler, an honourable and gorgeous naval officer in the newly formed American Navy.

    Nautical-themed historical fiction at its best… and swashbuckling good fun too!William C. Hammond’s “The Power and the Glory” is the third novel in an action-packed series focusing on the nautical adventures of a fictional New England family during the late 1790s and early 1800s. The Cutler family controlled a vast array of commercial enterprises and is closely connected with the fledgling US Navy in the decade following the American Revolution—when the United Kingdom and France swappe [...]

    I'll begin by saying I am not an expert in nautical novels, but I do enjoy historical tales, and there are few things made by man so beautiful as a ship under full sail.

As the Napoleonic war escalates in Europe, and French privateers prey upon US merchants, the infant American navy begins to grow and Richar [...]

    Waiting for the next one. I was suffering from withdrawl after Patrick O'brian, Hornblower, Alexander Kent et al, this was a pleasant surprise and more historical detail than most yarns of this type. A nice piece of American Naval history detailing with the early days of the American Navy taking its place on the international stage.


  • Ande

    I was disappointed by book two, hope this one is better!


  • Delilah Trenaman

    This is a really good book for naval history and I learned alot from it about sailing in the seventeen hundreds.


  • Virgil Larson
