The Straits of Treachery: The thrilling historical adventure by Richard Hopton

September 1810. Raids across the Straits of Messina to disrupt preparations for the French invasion of the island have been repulsed with heavy casualties. George Warne, a bright young British officer, suspects treachery back in Messina, and is ordered to investigate.

If the long-threatened French invasion erupts will Sicily's defenders be prepared? Winner of the SAHR Prize for Military Fiction.
