Review Comments

Brilliant book! I read this in three days because I couldn't put it down. It shows the passion and the extremes that the family have gone to in order to keep their fort and country over the years. A must read - Dan I can honestly say that this is the first book that I have picked up and started to read and was unable to put it down until finished What a great true story of struggle against government red tape, piracy and the personal lives of one family to establish a principality that they could truly call their own. After the read I wanted to know more so googled Sealand and the results were amazing. A must read! - Trevor
