About this title

Synopsis:

Having obtained a position on the Glatton, Richard Delancey is soon to see action in the Battle of Camperdown. But the Nore and Spithead mutinies intervene to upset the course of his career.

From the Publisher:

Born in the north of England shortly before World War I, Cyril Northcote Parkinson pursued a distinguished academic career on both sides of the Atlantic. Before he ever turned his hand to fiction, he became famous for unveiling "Parkinson's Law," the widely known conjecture that work expands to fill the time allowed for its completion. Parkinson wrote many books concentrated on British politics and economics, but his Richard Delancey series has drawn favorable comparisons to Forester and the Hornblower stories. In fact, Parkinson's first fictional effort, a "biography" of Hornblower, has enjoyed considerable acclaim. C. Northcote Parkinson died in Canterbury, England in 1993.
