Product Description

Product Description

They huddled in nervous bunches along the upper deck, kicking each other’s boots, checking each other’s belts, slapping each other’s backs and looking pale. A ration of rum warmed their stomachs whilst the gently biting wind and a light ocean spray swept across their ranks in continual waves...

1854. In a little known theatre of war, far from the battlefields of Sevastopol, the Anglo-French fleet of the Pacific Station, led by an ageing British rear admiral, is tasked to seek out and dispatch a roving enemy flagship known to be stalking waters along the Eastern coast of Russia. Through a haze of cannon fire and musket smoke, British, French and Russian sailors clash to determine who shall retain the freedom to sail these cold Northern waters.

More About the Author

J. P. Crowe always intended to pen at least one novel set during overlooked events of the Crimean War, Gallic Wars or wider barbarian-era Europe. He holds a degree in English and History.

Sand in the Sea is his first novel and follows the actions of the Anglo-French Pacific fleet during the Crimean War. It was researched and written over 24 months whilst studying for a master's degree and draws upon historical fact, contemporary and revisionist theory, personal account and a touch of creative license.

He is writing a second novel set between 345-355 BC Celtic Britain and Europe following a Roman soldier, son of a respected consul, turned exile and mercenary.

In his spare time he writes other books.

He lives in London.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 22 April 2013
By Kat K
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought it would be interesting to read about the crimean war. This is the story of the sea battles in Kamchaka (that place best known from the 'Risk' game board). While i found the story interesting and wanted to read to the end the characters didn't really engage me or draw me in and so I found the book quite hard going. I did finish it and while I cannot comment on the historical accuracy I did get to understand a little more about life at sea with the French and British navy of the time and the impossible burdens palced upon their commanders!
