Trumpeter Takes CommandThe hero of this book by R. S. Young is Tomatio Trumpeter and if you think of the name of the name of C. S. Forester's hero you start to establish the tone of this parody of the genre.

As all good parodies do the author takes great liberties with every aspect of a typical age of sail naval narrative including the names and ranks of the crew, ship handling and the history and attitudes of the time.

It won't be to everyones taste, but it was an enjoyable read to see fun poked at what you might consider the sterotypical plot line of such novels.
