Colours Aloft!
The grim reality of war at close quarters confronts Bolitho and he will be called upon to anticipate the strategies of the French fleet. But the conflict has also taken on a personal note - the vendetta between Bolitho and the French Admiral, Jobert, who once commanded the "Argonaute". It is a cold mid-September in 1803 when Vice-Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho finds himself the new master of the Argonaute - a French flagship taken in battle. With the Peace of Amiens in Ruins, he must leave the safety of Falmouth and take his place in the harder war that follows. What lies ahead is the grim reality of war at close quarters - where Bolitho will be called upon to anticipate the overall intention of the French fleet". Front of book has chronological list of titles. 286pp
