Written By: Patrick O’brian

Narrated By: Robert Hardy

Date: June 2005

Duration: 2 hours 56 minutes

Summary:

The higher one climbs, the further there is to fall.
As war with Napoleon seemingly draws to a close, opportunities for advancement are limited and Jack Aubrey faces the ultimate indignity – the possibility of being ‘yellowed’, or retired, and set aside with no squadron of his own. But the blockade of Brest presents dangers to equal those of the furthest shores.



Who poses the greater threat to a naval man through and through? A resurgent Bonaparte or the Admiralty itself?



‘On every page [O’Brian] reminds us with noble artistry of the most important of all historical lessons: that times change but people don’t, that the griefs and follies and victories of the men and women who were here before us are in fact the maps of our own lives.’
RICHARD SNOW, New York Times



‘These novels are a brilliant achievement. They display staggering erudition on almost all aspects of eighteenth-century life.’
