AT THE EDGE OF HONOR


 – 2003 Patrick D. Smith Literary Award for Best Historical Novel of Florida


 – Review by Randy Wayne White, New York Times best-selling novelist: “Robert Macomber is a first-rate naval historian, and At the Edge of Honor proves it. The fascinating story of Florida’s Civil War sea battles was unknown to me until I read this book.”


POINT OF HONOR


 – 2004 John Esten Cooke Literary Award for Best Work in Southern Fiction


 – Review by John Prados [author of Combined Fleet Decoded]: “At last! Finally we have an American character the equivalent of Hornblower or Aubry.”


HONORABLE MENTION


 – Review by Joe Weber [author of Defcon One and Rules of Engagement]: “Robert Macomber’s Honorable Mention is truly exceptional!  Following At the Edge of Honor & Point of Honor, this rousing sea adventure is reminiscent of the swashbuckling yarns of Robert Louis Stevenson & Herman Wouk. Honorable Mention is extraordinary, a first-rate historical novel by a master of the genre.”


THE DARKEST SHADE OF HONOR


 – Review by Booklist: “A solid entry in this popular series.”


THE ASSASSIN’S HONOR


 – Review by Phil Jason, PhD. [Professor Emeritus of English, U.S. Naval Academy]: “One of the great feelings that comes over me when I settle into a new Honor Series novel by Robert Macomber is the sense that I’m in such capable and caring hands. It’s like having an insurance policy against disappointments. And there are none in the 12th installment of this unique and durable series ….”
