"This nice new book by American author Mark Lardas is probably the best single book on explaining what the ships, the tactics, and the men operating these vessels were like and what they experienced."

"In this book, author Mark Lardas looks at the history of the development of the frigate from both [the British and the French] points of view. This includes the quality and training of the men who sailed these ships. We are then provided with several combats between the two nations as examples to what all that was previously covered did to the way a battle played out. The book then ends with an assessment of what was covered. This is all accompanied by period artwork as well as more modern illustrations, making for another excellent title in this series and one that I can highly recommend for an interesting read."
