9780750527224: Tenacious

This book finds Thomas Kydd aboard Tenacious, part of a small squadron commanded by Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson. Its mission is to scour the Mediterranean and locate Napoleon and his army. Kydd's newly fired ambition leads him to volunteer for shore service in the capture of Minorca. Later, he faces the great ships-of-the-line at the Battle of the Nile as the British take on the French in a no-holds-barred struggle for supremacy in southern waters. But there is one more test to come: the Siege of Acre, where Kydd and a handful of British seamen under the command of Sir Sidney Smith face an army of thirteen thousand!

From the Author:

The more I researched for this book, the more I came to believe that it was not Trafalgar that was Nelson’s finest hour – to my mind that came seven years earlier, in the shallow, sandy waters of Aboukir Bay, off the coast of Alexandria – at the Battle of the Nile – and an engagement which is central to this book. Tom Kydd actually meets his great hero Lord Nelson and is eye witness to his tumultuous welcome at Naples after the great victory. It is always a challenge for a writer to deal with real characters from history but no historical fiction writer dealing with the great age of sail can ignore Nelson. It was with some humility that I wrote my brief pen portrait, and I trust it gives some small insights into both the seamanship and the humanity of the man.

From the Back Cover:

Lieutenant Thomas Kydd takes his rightful place upon the quarterdeck, but the decisions he must make will test him to the limit!
