New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1971. First US Edition. Hard Cover. Used; Very Good/Very Good. DJ has worn edges with some tears and small chips; book edges have light soiling; rear hinge torn for several inches from middle. Deep blue boards with gold titles on spine; maps on endpapers; pictorial DJ; 384 pp. 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.

Douglas Reeman (Alexander Kent) did convoy duty in the Atlantic, the Arctic and the North Sea. He has written over thirty novels under his own name and more than twenty bestselling historical novels featuring Richard Bolitho under the pseudonym Alexander Kent.
