If you overlook the wildly improbable acts of derring-do engaged in by Bob, and the shallow characterisations, this is actually quite a good book with in depth descriptions of the colony’s defence. I downloaded it to read while on holiday in Gibraltar and I found it hard to put down; being in Gibraltar and seeing the places described (as well as visiting other places mentioned such as Tangiers, Algeciras, La Linea etc) made the book come alive. Even if you haven’t visited it would still make a good read if you like history and naval stories of the Patrick O’Brian type (‘Master and Commander’ etc).
