Oh, Ramage, what am I going to do with you? Ramage is the delicious, fat fast-food of the Age of Sail novels. You know, on some level, it's not as good and wholesome as the full meals that O'Brian or Forester provide, but it is still delicious!Yes, the main character is a god-mode Mary Sue, yet, I am sadly addicted to this series. I might pick up the next book in the series right away, I do not think I will be able to resist. The series may be lacking the lavish prose and period detail of O'Bria [...]

I really enjoyed the opening book in this series and just got my hands on a copy of the Drumbeat and I found it to be just as good. I will be on the look out for the rest of the series in my bookstore travels. If you have read and enjoyed the Hornblower series, give the Ramage series a go!

This is the second i Dudley Pope's Ramage series chronicling the adventures of Nicholas Ramage, Lieutenant in the Royal Navy. This novel follows close on the first of the series, with Ramage in command of HMS Kathleen, a small cutter, charged with taking the Marchesa de Volterra and her cousin to Gibraltar after having rescued them from Napoleon's forces on the Italian coast. Ramage comes across a demasted Spanish frigate in the middle of the Mediterranean. Using cunning and bravado, he manages [...]

A nautical education. If I knew anything about sailing I would probably give this book one more star.

This is book two in the Lord Ramage series. This series is set between 1796 and 1807. This period of time was considered the Anglo-Spanish War as part of the French Revolutionary Wars. Lord Ramage is an interesting and likable character. Unlike other naval historical novels of the same time frame, Ramage is of an upper class background and is a Lord. He is Lord Nicholas Ramage, oldest son of the tenth Earl of Blazey, Admiral of the White. He was born in 1775 at Blazey hall, St. Kew Cornwall. He [...]

A nice follow up to book # 1 - picks up right where the last book left off without a gap. An exciting action packed adventure of Lt. Ramage and his command of the HMS Kathleen and how he ultimately helped warn Admiral Jarvis and Commodore Nelson of the massing and combining of the Spanish Armada, (complete with the largest ship in the world the La Santisima Trinidad - a 4 deck 136 gun wall of terror) and Napoleon's Navy in Cadiz. The resulting battle of Cape St. Vincent on Valentines day in 1797 [...]

I don't know a lot about naval history, but this historical fiction book includes the Battle of Cape St Vincent(14 February 1797). Although it starts out as a romance, men in the navy when sailing ships ruled!

Lieutenant Lord Ramage takes the cutter Kathleen toward Gibraltar, and finds more than he bargained for. Mr. Pope's knowledge and description of late 18th century sailing ships and tactics is extraordinary, and clearly explained. Ramage himself and his love interest, Gianna, aren't particularly interesting characters, but some of Ramage's shipmates are, and the action, especially the climactic engagement, is very exciting.As previously noted, the Ramage books don't measure up to Hornblower and A [...]

Okay, yeah, it's not O'Brian, but we weren't expecting that. Just relaxing fun, bit too adventurey and a bit Marty Stu for my tastes, but then there you go. I liked the historical cameos (but then of course you are going to have those in a book about the Battle of Cape St Vincent.) Nelson was fun, Jervis surprisingly human (I gasped!), Troubridge his wonderful self. and oh! Oh! Berry! *heartbubbles*Oh, and can we have another book like 'Billy Ruffian' but about the 'Culloden'? Yes/Yes?

This is my second book in this series by Dudley Pope. If the rest are as good as this one then I am looking forward to more good reading. Nicholas Ramage is an officer that is respected by his men so much so that they would follow him into the pits of Hell if asked. In this book that is just what he does at the battle of St. Vincent.

Light, enjoyable reading. Retells he story of the battle on Valentine's day off the Cape of St. Vincent betwen a fleet of 15 for the English and 27 for the Spanish. The story is light and not very detailed, but it was great to read on the plane returning home.

The first of the Ramage books - all of which are exciting and well written. The Ramage series ranks 3rd with me behind Hornblower and Bolitho for age of sail excitement. Ramage is just a little too good and nothing is impossible

The second in the Ramage series was fair, not great. One of the problems is that Hornblower's done it all before, and made it look much more impressive. Ramage just sort of lucks his way out of trouble half the time. Anyway, it's entertaining, but no Hornblower.
