‘Paints a vivid picture of life aboard the mighty ship-of-the-line’ – Daily Express

Commander Thomas Kydd is eager to play his part in thwarting Bonaparte’s plans for the invasion of England.

Joining Admiral Nelson’s command, Kydd and his ship soon find themselves at the heart of the action that leads up to the greatest sea battle in history: Trafalgar.

Kydd’s journey takes him from false sightings of the enemy and dramatic chases across the Atlantic, to the bloody annihilation of the enemy during the actual battle, and the heroic aftermath.
