Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Plymouth, July 1801: Richard Bolitho's small squadron, still repairing the scars of battle earned in heavy action at Copenhagen, has been months away from the sea. After eight years of war with France, Britain must make a gesture that will show strength and determination—and one which will dramatically weaken the French cause. Rear-Admiral Bolitho must follow his flag's tradition of victory, even though—for the first time in his life—he is torn between the demands of public duty and personal need.

Synopsis:

The 14th volume in the rousing series detailing the adventures of Richard Bolitho in the late 18th century British Navy. After eight years of war with France, Britain must make a gesture that will show her strength and determination and one that dramatically will weaken the French cause. The Admiralty wants an attack.
