Post Captain is the 2nd in the series (I'm now finishing number 4). I will say it is very hard going at first, due to the naval terminology. The first book I read with a dictionary, a glossary of nautical terms and a sailing manual. I'm so happy I worked through it as the study of the history as it added tremendous impact to the book.5/5(2). This is the second book in the series. Patrick O'Brian is regarded by many as the greatest historical novelist now writing.
