9780099493921: Enemy in Sight (Richard Bolitho)

The sea war is still in the balance; Bolitho must risk everything with his new crew.

The Mediterranean, 1793: Despite Britain's successes, the outcome of the sea war is still in the balance. As soon as his ship's refit is completed, Captain Richard Bolitho is ordered to join the blockade off the French coast. Hyperion's new crew is still little better than a rabble. But if he is to be victorious, Bolitho must test them prematurely — and risk a court-martial if he fails.

As 1794 draws to a close Richard Bolitho, commanding the old seventy-four-gun ship of the line Hyperion, leaves Plymouth to join a squadron blockading the rising power of Revolutionary France. After six months of repairs his ship is ready to fight again, but her company is mostly raw and untrained.
