Aubrey-Maturin #8: The Ionian Mission

Aubrey-Maturin #8: The Ionian Mission Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin, veterans now of many battles, return in this novel to the seas where they first sailed as shipmates. But Jack is now a senior captain commanding a line-of-battle ship in the Royal Navy's blockade of Toulon, and this is a longer, harder, colder war than the dashing frigate actions of his early days. A sudden turn of events takes him and Stephen off on a hazardous mission to the Greek Islands, where all his old skills of seamanship and his proverbial luck when fighting against odds come triumphantly into their own.

Synopsis:

"O'Brian is one author who can put a spark of character into the sawdust of time, and is another rattling good yarn."--Stephen Vaughan,

About the Author

Patrick O'Brian wrote many novels, including the extraordinarily popular Aubrey/Maturin series about the Royal Navy in the time of Nelson. He died in 2000.
