Band of Brothers

Band of Brothers - Alexander Kent This one disappointed me. First it's short. 125 pages more or less. This concludes the Bolitho Midshipman series. I feel cheated somehow. The whole what happened to Martyn is not in the book. That's ... that's ... I don't know how to express my anger at this. I wanted to know how. Richard gets his lieutenant commission after this "adventure" after a very courageous act and finding out he can lead men. But he loses Martyn in the process and being the scene because they aren't together during the last 3 chapters of the book. (Remember the book is pretty short). This lost has an huge emotional impact on him. It's almost the whole second book "Stand into danger". So disappointed but looking forward to In Gallant Company.
