The Flag Captain

by KENT, Alexander

Condition: See description


London, Hutchinson and Co. 1971. FIRST EDITION, 8vo. Publisher's dark brown cloth in a handsome pictorial dustjacket depicting the 'Battle of the Nile', engraved by Robert Pollard from a painting by Nicholas Pocock. Front and back endpapers are decorated with the map of Spain. An excellent copy, just a hint of a lean and a touch of dust to the top, otherwise fine in fine dustjacket. Classic naval fiction; It is April 1797, Falmouth Bay, and returning home after 18 months' continuous service, Flag Captain Richard Bolitho finds himself at the centre of the Great Mutiny crisis.

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.
