Description:     

A tale of the bloodiest mutiny in the history of the Royal Navy - the butchering of the officers aboard the frigate HERMIONE in the West Indies in 1797. Having disposed of the captain, Hugh Pigot, a brutal and sadistic commander and all his officers both guilty and innocent, the mutineers surrendered the ship to the Spanish.

The author describes the daring recapture of the HERMIONE from under the guns of the Spanish forts, and the Royal Navy's relentless pursuit of the mutineers over the next ten years

Dudley Pope, a naval historian, is also author of a series of novels set during this period of history.
