"One of our foremost writers of naval fiction" Sunday Times Commodore Bolitho leads his squadron to battle against the French fleet. As master of France, Napoleon now turns towards the East - and the vast wealth of India. But first he must secure the eastern Mediterranean and Egypt. Richard Bolitho has been made the Commodore of a newly formed squadron, in a British fleet stretched to the limit, facing one of the toughest commissions of his career: to ascertain the fighting strength of the French - then seek, find and bring them to battle!

About the Author:

Alexander Kent, pen name of Douglas Edward Reeman, joined the British Navy at 16, serving on destroyers and small craft during World War II, and eventually rising to the rank of lieutenant. He has taught navigation to yachtsmen and has served as a script adviser for television and films. His books have been translated into nearly two dozen languages.

From AudioFile:

The incomparable Michael Jayston reads up a storm with this Napoleonic-era sea story, set in the Mediterranean just before the Battle of the Nile. Jayston's impeccable pronunciation, his variations in accents and characterization, and his timing and the varying tension in his voice make this a remarkable listening experience. Commodore Richard Bolitho is tasked with taking a tiny squadron on an intelligence mission: Where are the French? There are battles and captures and blood. One can smell the powder smoke, thanks to the compatible skills of Jayston and the author. Nor are the human dimensions slighted; the characters are alive! They move and plot and think. A real achievement all around. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. When in 1798 Richard Bolitho hoists his broad pendant as commodore of a small squadron and prepares to re-enter the Mediterranean he is soon made aware of his responsibility. There are rumours of a massive French armada and of the latest type of artillery - and Bolitho s orders are to seek out the enemy and to discover the intentions of his growing force. Without any British bases in the Mediterranean, and unable to show favour to old friends, Bolitho is well aware that there are others within his ships who are no less dangerous than the enemy - and during the weeks and months in which the squadron faces the hazards of the weather and French broadsides alike, Bolitho knows that far more than his own future is at stake. A fleet, even a nation, could depend on his decisions and, when he places his squadron between the Nile and the power of France, he must accept the price of the challenge.
