    One thought on “Thunder at Dawn

    1. Ian

      1917, Commander David Smith is thought to have lost his nerve after being sunk in his previous ship and has had a high-profile affair with a society lady. To get him out of the way the Admiralty posts him to HMS Thunder, a superannuated cruiser patrolling the Pacific coast of South America. But when the ship's captain suffers a fatal accident and intelligence suggests that two powerful German surface raiders are headed for the area, Smith finds himself in command and very much in the war.Short o [...]

      1917, off the South American coast, HMS Thunder is worn out and obsolete armored cruiser, manned by the dregs of the service, with a captain accused of cowardice and the only Royal Navy ship in the region. When two German warships enter the area, Thunder and her crew must prepare to face opponents who are both too strong to fight and too fast to run from. Now it has to be admitted that what I read was only a readers digest version but it is a story that has stayed with me and influenced me own e [...]

    3. Hal

      This book is not in the class of great writers of British naval warfare as C.S. Forester, Patrick O'Brien, Alexander Kent and Frederick Maryat. The plot was tangled, slowly paced and at the end left the reader hanging. I didn't feel I knew any of the characters. The writing was tedious and unexciting. As someone who greatly enjoys such books as the Hornblower series, I was really disappointed.s

    4. Doc

      2.5I liked the story and the characters, but wading through a number of unwieldy, even ungrammatical sentences diminished my enjoyment of this book. The author has an unwarranted aversion to legitimate, necessary commas.This book, the first in a series, brings its story to end, but somehow the serial-setup ending still felt weak.

    5. Tony

      a very exciting well paced WW1 naval thriller.Exciting maverick captain who runs a tight ship,not popular with some crew or politicians but gets the job done one way or another. First class non stop read.

    6. Marlin Bree

      Grand sea storyLots of seafaring action and battles well told by a master. I enjoyed the literary ride. A good and exciting book.

    7. Fredrick Danysh

      During World War I the captain of H.M.S. Thunder is informed by a spy that the Germans are sending two destroyers to find and destroy his ship. He prepares for battle even though he is outnumbered.
