(From the publisher):
The year is 1798. Napoleon's naval forces are amassing in the Mediterranean, preparing to annex Egypt, and it is there the newly-promoted Commodore Richard Bolitho is sent with a small squadron of ships under his command. Alone in the friendless waters, he must gain whatever intelligence he can and engage the enemy whenever possible. And when Bolitho places his squadron between the Nile and the entire French fleet, the fate of his men and the freedom of his nation hang on the decisions he must make in the awful heat of battle.
