This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Lieutenant Thomas Kydd takes his place on the quarterdeck as commander of the ship Tenacious in this riveting sailing adventure. Part of a small squadron commanded by Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson, Kydd scours the Mediterranean in search of Napoleon and his army. Kydd’s ambition leads him to volunteer for shore service with the British army in the capture of Minorca and later to the Battle of the Nile as the British take on the French in a brutal struggle for naval supremacy. Ultimately the currents of war force Kydd to face his toughest challenge yet: the siege of Acre, where a handful of British seamen under the command of Sir Sidney Smith must stand against a daunting army of more than 13,000.
