Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nothing is more terrifying to a seagoing captain than the specter of mutiny, and nothing more riveting than a tale of mutinous deeds. Here Leonard F. Guttridge provides a casebook of mutinies that have occurred over the past two hundred years-from the Magellan expedition to the U.S. aircraft carrier Constellation.

"Mutinies make for excellent reading." (The Daily Telegraph)

"Captivating. Leonard F. Guttridge takes his readers on an eloquent historical tour." (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

"This is a well-balanced, illuminating treatment of a rather murky subject, handled deftly. A valuable addition to any naval library." (Associated Press)

"A fascinating study of law, discipline, and morale. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

About the Author

Leonard F. Guttridge is the author of Icebound and Ghosts of Cape Sabine. He wrote The Great Coalfield War with George S. McGovern and short stories and essays on jazz for the album covers of Time-Life's "Giants of Jazz" and the Smithsonian's "Big Band Jazz" series.
