A Kydd Sea AdventureBook - 2015
"Enemies onboard and off are only the beginning. The court martial of Sir Home Popham is underway at Portsmouth. When Captain Sir Thomas Kydd's sympathy for his former commanding officer's unauthorized actions in the doomed occupation of Buenos Aires becomes known, Kydd finds himself athwart some very powerful people. At odds with Admiralty-- and with his frigate L'Aurore unfit for sea-- Kydd is given a new commission that many hope will destroy his career. Tyger has recently mutinied and instead of dispersing her crew the ship is immediately pressed into service in the North Sea. With an untested and untrustworthy crew Kydd becomes entangled in Napoleon's invasion of Prussia and the only way for him to avoid disgrace is to gamble on a crazy mission to snatch a Prussian division out of the jaws of Napoleon's advancing army. Will Kydd return home once more a hero, or will he face his own court martial?" -- Jacket.
