New book, 380 pages. By 1809 the Indian Ocean had become the final battleground for Nelson's navy and the French fleet. In one fatal season, Britain lost fourteen of her great Indiamen, either sunk of taken by enemy frigates. Hundreds of lives were lost, and the East India Company was shaken to its foundations. Drawing on original research, the book brings alive the terrifying ordeal of the men, women, and children caught up in the storms and battles of that season, and also paints a searing portrait of the British captains whose zeal and ambition was such that they would rather die than capitulate.
