9780141033143: Under Enemy Colours: Charles Hayden Book 1

1793: the thunder of cannon fire echoes across the

English Channel, chilling the stoutest hearts . . .

The opening skirmishes of the French Revolutionary War send ageing frigate HMS Themis into waters swarming with enemy ships of the line. Instructed to survey the French coastline, she's soon in the thick of the action: cutlasses slash and bayonets skewer, cannons splinter decks and sever limbs. Onto the smoky deck strides young Lieutenant Charles Hayden.

With an English father and a French mother, the Admiralty are reluctant to give Hayden his first command. Instead, he is to act as a bulwark between the Themis's tyrannical Captain Hart and a mutinous crew. Steering a course between the cowardly captain and the treacherous crew, English common sense and French pride, Hayden must first master his wits before challenging the might of the French naval war machine.

Review:

Russell's encyclopedic command of nautical lore, joined to his rare ability to spin a ripping yarn, combine to place the reader right in the middle of the action, of which there is plenty. ( Neal Stephenson )

From the Publisher:

At last, a worthy successor to the likes of Patrick O'Brian and C S Forester... Under Enemy Colours is a brilliant novel of maritime adventure - perfectly capturing the jeopardy and drama of the early days of the Napoleonic wars. Sean Thomas Russell writes both forcefully and thoughtfully - skilfully combining the brutal action of naval warfare with the tension and intrigue of the politics of the time. This is the brilliant first novel in a series featuring Royal Navy officer, Charles Hayden. If you've enjoyed reading the exploits of Sharpe, Hornblower and Jack Aubrey - you're sure to love Under Enemy Colours.
