About this title

Synopsis:

The sixth novel in Julian Stockwin's seafaring series about Thomas Paine Kydd shows Kydd's ambition starting to dawn, as he realises that now he's an officer there are no limits to where he can go in the Navy.

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.
