Description - Birds Of Prey by Wilbur Smith

It is 1667 and the mighty naval war between the Dutch and the English still rages.

'The scope is magnificent and the epic scale breathtaking . . . Wilbur Smith is one of those benchmarks against whom others are compared' The Times 'An epic and gripping tale' Mail on Sunday 'Meticulous research supports constant excitement in a fast-moving tale' Washington Post 'A gripping tale, relentless in its flow, that evokes a more colourful age - one of passion and a majesty of spirit that is seldom illustrated with such nerve' Daily Express
