(From the publisher):
George Abercrombie Fox.
Born London, 29th September, 1765.
Second child in a family of ten.
Named after his uncle, who was hanged at Tyburn.
Joined navy as 'powder-monkey' in 1775.
Finally gazetted as lieutenant in 1793.
Possessed of enormous talent and courage.
Virtually devoid of noble patronage.
Still a lieutenant in 1800.
There was little peace in England, and none for Fox.
The War at sea - and a man who fought it.
