Douglas Edward Reeman, who also writes under the name Alexander Kent, joined the British Navy at 16, serving on destroyers and small craft during World War II, eventually rising to the rank of lieutenant. He has taught navigation to yachtsmen and has served as a script adviser for television and films. As Alexander Kent, Reeman is the author of the best-selling Richard Bolitho Novels.

It is a good yarn. I am here in Korea for 2 months and dependent on my Kindle for light reading enjoyment. This book
certainly satisfies that task. But it reads somehow flat and formulaic compared with books of Reeman that I recall
from reading 20 years go when I was similarly in the UK (and buying paperbacks). It is a good yarn, don't get me wrong.
But it reads as though he had gotten tired as a writer (happens to all of us) and is simply churning out books. By all
means buy it. But keep in mind that it may not be up to vintage Reeman.

I had read (and re-read) several of the Alexander Kent Bolitho novels and enjoyed them. When I discovered that Douglas Reeman had written a series on the Royal Marines, I wanted to see how well his style translated. The story is an enjoyable read. The author captures the sense of the ethos of the organization from training to unit cohesion while recognizing the good, and bad in leaders and individuals. He describes the difference between the real human reactions of fear and doubt in the face of a dangerous and chaotic situation, and the need to lead and act. I previewed it on my Kindle and then bought it, so that must be a vote for.
Whatever
I have over the years enjoyed Douglas Reeman's / Alexander Kent's Bolitho as well as his modern Royal Navy books. There ia a variety of quality of stories, but usually they have been engaging. Unfortunately the Royal Marine stories just don't seem "up to the mark" of his naval works.
Nakora
Reeman writes in meticulous detail in this, and all his stories. This novel is fast paced, the characters are well described and the conflicts are understandable and resolved in logical fashion. All his Royal Marine novels are good. This one is slightly better than average.

All of Douglas Reeman's books about the Royal Marines are excellent, but Badge of Glory was his best.

Wow! Lots of action. It, however, went too slow. While I enjoyed novel, I liked others of his much more.
Kulwes
Good historical drama
Authentic naval terminology puts you on the quarterdeck with your face in the wind. Great historical references tracking the growth of the royal Marines. Can't wait to read the next one!
