Midshipman Graham and the Battle of Abukir by James Boschert
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Midshipman Graham and the Battle of Abukir by James Boschert is a relatively short read at only 241 pages. What this book lacks in length it more than makes up for in action. If you are a military history fan, look no further. Packed full of flowing descriptions of everything from characters to scenery and of course the hair raising action of the battle, Midshipman Graham is everything you might expect from a military historical fiction. The reader is immersed in the life of a sixteen year old boy, the titular Graham, and follow him through his journey in the French military. The Napoleon aspect should attract his fans considering I spent many hours researching everything Napoleonic after reading this novel. Something else I learned is that the author has an interesting military history which makes it glaringly obvious why this felt so solid in subject foundation.
