The best historical novels ever written. . . . On every page Mr. O’Brian reminds us with subtle artistry of the most important of all historical lessons: that times change, but people don’t, that the griefs and follies and victories of the men and women who were here before us are in fact the maps of our own lives. —Richard Snow, New York Times Book Review
