"Great naval action and deep historical detail in the vein of OBrian and Forester." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

In Dewey Lambdins Kings and Emperors, Captain Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy, is still in Gibraltar, his raids along the coast of southern Spain shot to a halt. He is reduced to commanding a clutch of harbor defense gunboats in the bay while his ship, HMS Sapphire, slowly grounds herself on a reef of beef bones! Until Napoleon Bonapartes invasion of Portugal and his march into Spain change everything, freeing Sapphire to roam against the kings enemies once more!

As kings are overthrown and popular uprisings break out across Spain, Lewries right back in the action, ferrying weapons to arm Spanish patriots, scouting the impregnable fort of Ceuta, escorting the advance units of British expeditionary armies to aid the Spanish, and even going ashore to witness the first battles between Sir Arthur Wellesley, later the Duke of Wellington, and Napoleons best marshals, as the long Peninsular War that broke Imperial France begins to unfold.

From Cdiz to La Corua, Lewrie and Sapphire will be there as history explodes!
