About the Author:

Leonard F. Guttridge is the author or coauthor of several books, including Icebound: The Jeannette Expedition's Quest for the North Pole; Mutiny: A History of Naval Insurrection; and The Commodores. He lives in Alexandria, Virginia.

From Library Journal:

Mutiny! The word itself has struck fear into the hearts of naval officers since the inception of organized navies. Yet, as Guttridge demonstrates in this narrative history of modern mutinies, there still is no precise definition of mutiny or mutinous behavior. Beginning with mutiny in the navy of England's George I (1714-27), the author ( Icebound , LJ 6/1/86) provides detailed and fascinating descriptions of such famous mutinies as the Bounty , the Somers, and the Potemkin . He examines modern occurrences, such as those on United States aircraft carriers during the Vietnam War, and discusses the connection between mutiny and morale as a fitting conclusion. This is a fascinating study of law, discipline, and morale as they interact at sea from a historical perspective. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries.
