The 11th Drinkwater novel, this story set in 1811 at the time of Napoleon's French Empire and the emerging power of the United States, sees Drinkwater caught up in international accusation and acrimony, an urgent trip to Chesapeake Bay and a final climactic naval action in the South Atlantic.
Richard Woodman is well-known for his Nathaniel Drinkwater series of historical naval novels, a dozen other sea-stories, histories of the development of ships and works on sea-power during the Napoleonic Wars. He has also produced two widely acclaimed studies of convoys operations during the Second World War, Malta Convoys and Arctic Convoys.
