The fourth volume in the Bolitho series and one which has become rather difficult to locate in collectable condition … "Coming home after eighteen months of continuous service against the French … Coming home - to mutiny. Mutiny at Spithead, at the Nore, at Falmouth … The most dreaded and infectious of the disasters that can befall the armed forces of a nation at war had crippled the Royal Navy." …

Masterful storytelling continues in the C.S. Forester tradition. In the spring of 1797 Captain Richard Bolitho of the British Royal Navy brings his 100-gun ship home to Falmouth. Plans by the French for a cross-channel invasion have been thwarted, but now they are threatening Africa and Egypt. Bolitho's Euryalus is going to be the flagship of a hastily formed squadron heading to the Mediterranean for a year. He must deal with an unyielding admiral who was involved in the recent mutiny at Spithead, and there are rumors that another even greater uprising looms ahead.
