Article in Adult Fiction category.


Beach served as Executive Officer of the USS Tirante during World War II, experience which contributed to his best-known novel, Run Silent, Run Deep from which a film starring Clark Gable was made. His father, Edward L. Beach, Sr. was also an author who wrote non-fiction and young adult novels..
While The Bounty Trilogy closely follows the facts of the famous mutiny very closely, the conspiracy, Bligh's incredible open-boat voyage, and the tragic fate of the mutineers form a story as dramatic as anything in naval fiction.
Some readers feel O'Brian's prose echoes Jane Austen's, which is only fitting since she wrote at the time in which his hero, Jack Aubry, lived. The era of the Napoleonic Wars is remarkable for the fiction it has inspired.
