03:40 pm Yesterday, I finally finished reading The Invasion Year by Dewey Lambdin, another Napoleonic era naval adventure novel. It's good, the whole series is very readable, but I've let a number of other books slide in front of it. I pushed to finish it the last week or so because the newest book by this author came up in my queue, and I still hadn't finished this one. It brings the protagonist into the English Channel to participate in actions intended to dissuade Napoleon from trying his luck in amphibious operations into England. Good read.
