Product Description

Product Description

During the Napoleonic War era, Captain John Phillips, RN takes command of the frigate HMS Resolve. His son Timothy now serving beside him as a midshipman, he is handicapped by his latest marital difficulties. The orders for his new mission take him from his problems at home and send him to the Mediterranean where he must deliver a consignment of gold and silver coin. After battling pirates and corrupt officials, he, his ship and crew are successful.

Returning to the Atlantic, off the coast of Portugal, he and his son battle French naval forces. Later, he is sent to the Caribbean where pirates are causing havoc with British trade. His fortunes on the mend (at least temporarily) with his wife, he receives an audience with King George III in recognition with his naval successes.

The John Phillips stories are exciting and good to read but Richars Testrake's compass is adrift - he needs to understand east from west. Also his knowledge of the Navy, boats and procedure could do with a massive overhaul, especially the historical facts and terminology. However, a good read if you ignore the typos and the missing and misspelt words!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 10 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For me this story did not 'flow' far too much emphasis on juggling crews about for maning prizes.
