Ramage & the Dido
Ramage hopes to enjoy a well-deserved leave when he receives new orders: commission and take command of the Dido--a massive 74-gun ship, that carries enough weight of metal to destroy a frigate in a single broadside, or sweep a ship's decks clear of men. Accompanied by the courageous crew of the Calypso, Ramage ventures to sea once again--bound for the West Indies where he faces the challenge of commanding this massive weapon of war.
