In September 1931, the mass mutiny of the sailors of the Royal Navys Atlantic Fleet at Invergordon, Scotland, brought down the final curtain on the British Empire. In this historical fiction account, Charles Gidley Wheeler tells the life story of Frank Jannaway, a British sailor who finds himself at the focus of the mutiny. Sent into the Royal Navy against his will, Frank experiences the hardship and injustice of life on the lower deck aboard a coal-burning cruiser on the China Station. After serving with distinction at the Battle of Jutland, Frank reunites with Anita Yarrow, whom he has known since his youth and who has been sent to Malta in disgrace. Anita helps Frank, her childhood hero, to gain promotion to the rank of officer. Years later, when Anitas detestable brother Roddy terrorizes his officers aboard a cruiser of the Atlantic Fleet, Frank is appointed to his ship. The result is tragedy. From the Edwardian Golden Age to wartime Britain in the blitz, Jannaways Mutiny paints a vivid picture of heroism-and its ultimate price. This item ships from multiple locations.
