Alexander Kent


Pseudonym for Douglas Reeman (possibly)
All of Kent's books that I have read/seen are in the Richard Bolitho series. Bolitho is an officer in the Royal Navy during the age of Fighting Sail . The books are listed below chronologically, rather than in order of publication, and can be read in either order, although since they cover the events in the life of this one individual, chronologically later books contain spoilers for the chronologically earlier books, although the publication order may be reversed.
