But the enemy lies in wait. In the foulest of weather, Hayden's seamanship is tested to the limit and a terrifying cat-and-mouse chase begins. Faced with a powerful French squadron, Hayden knows he must elude capture at any cost. In his possession are details of an imminent attack on British soil that must be delivered before all is lost. Ahead lie shipwrecks, storms, battles and dramatic escapes - and at the centre of it all, the courage and heroism of a lone captain... A Ship of War is the brilliant third tale in the epic maritime adventures of Charles Hayden. A masterpiece already rivalling the stories of Bernard Cornwell and Patrick O'Brian.
