Synopsis: Newly promoted to be the youngest Captain in the Royal Navy, in 1804 Ramage is despatched to blockade the French in Martinique. The passage proves difficult; a slovenly crew under the command of a now incompetent drunk having to be overcome so as to realise the objective. Diamond Rock is fortified and a French convoy has to be dealt with as this gripping adventure proceeds, emulating the real life exploits of Commodore Samuel Hood RN.
About the Author: Dudley Pope was an experienced Naval officer, journalist and historian who has delighted generations of readers with thrilling stories of high adventure at sea. He was widely applauded throughout his life, gaining the reputation of being 'the best of Hornblower's successors'. He is perhaps most loved for his Ramage series which follows the exploits of Lord Nicholas Ramage during the Napoleonic Wars, but he is also highly respected for his scholarly works.
