Summary

As master of France, Napoleon now turns towards the East - and the vast wealth of India. But first he must secure the eastern Mediterranean and Egypt. Now Commodore of a newly-formed squadron in a British fleet stretched to the limit, Richard Bolitho faces one of the toughest commissions of his career: to ascertain the fighting strength of the French - then seek, find, and bring them to battle.

accurate story's wonderful listening

Michael Jayston puts the story over in such a way that you cannot take the head phones off till its finished.
the description to detail is incredible and accurate.
I have read many books by Alexander Kent.
and will continue to do so.
well done Michael and keep them coming.
