McBooks Press, Sep 1, 2002 - Fiction - 287 pages
0 Reviews
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.

About the author (2002)

Dudley Pope, a naval defense correspondent of the London Evening News, progressed to writing carefully researched naval history. C.S. Forester urged Pope to try his hand at fiction and saw the younger writer as his literary heir. Pope began what was to become an impressive series with Ramage (1965) and, over the next 24 years, produced 17 more novels tracing Lord Ramage's career. Pope died in 1997.
