As her new captain, Richard Bolitho was glad to go, despite the nature of his orders and the immensity of the voyage -- for he was leaving an England still suffering from the aftermath of war. But he was to learn that signatureson proud documents did not necessarily make a lasting peace, and found him self involved in a conflict as ruthless as the one which had given him his first command during the war with France. In an uneasy peace the expansion of trade and colonial development in little-known areas of the East Indies soon pushed aside the pretence and brough the guns' fury into the open. There was no set line of battle or declared cause to rally Undine's small company. But the dangers and the endless demands had to be faced by the man whocommanded the only King's ship available." - from the dj.

After nearly thirty years of almost continuous conflict with the old enemy, France, England and her Admiral desire only peace. But peace will not be found in the icy Canadian waters, where a young, angry nation asserts its identity, and men who share a common heritage die in close and bloody action. Nor is there peace for those who follow the Cross of St. George: not for the embittered Adam, mourning the loss of his lover and his ship, nor for Rear-Admiral Valentine Keen, who remains strangely indifferent to responsibility. Not will there be peace from those who use this struggle between nations as an instrument of personal revenge." - from the dj.

What was first thought to be a colonial rebellion had changed to an all-out struggle for freedom from British rule, and with the evacuation of Philadelphia and the mounting involvement of French forces,the British Navy's resources were stretched to the point beyond which ther e were no safety margins. For the young Richard Bolitho, the spring of the year was also to mark a complete transformation for himself and his future,from being a lieutenant in a ship of the line to a command of his own, a d ream which he had cherished since he had first gone to sea. The Sparrow, sloop of war, to her twenty-two-year-old commander was more than he could have hoped for. Small but fast, well armed and almost new, she offered the freedom and scope for his ideas which had long been denied him. He was son to discover there was more to command than stepping from one ship to another. An untried company,lethargy and hidebound complacency, even treachery seemed to dog his every mood. But when the great fleets of Britain and France converged on the Chesapeake for what might decide the fate of an entire continent, Sparrow was there, and Bolitho at last measured the true obligation of his first command" - from the dj.

LABROUSSE, Henri. Le Golfe et le Canal : La réouverture du canal de Suez etla paix internationale. Préface de Louise Weiss. [Paris] : Presses Univers itaires de France, 1973. First Edition. Pp (4),[5]-164. Maps, tables in text. 8vo, white and blue cardcovers. Not in Papadakis, International Law of the Sea: A Bibliography. or Supplement. Contre-Amiral Henri Labrousse (b. October 8, 1913, Marseille - d. February 20, 2010, Saint-Germain-en-Laye). "La crise du Moyen-Orient est souvent présentée comme une conséquence du problème palestinien qui, faute de règlement, fait obstacle à toutes les tentatives de paix entre Israël et les pays arabes. La situanon est figée et les bonnes volontés s'épuisent à charcher une solution qui rapprocherait les deux parties. Mais le peuple égyptien a un motif plus puissant que la cause palestinienne pour le tenir en alerte et mobiliser ses énergies : le canal de Suez, fermé depuis six ans. L'U.R.S.S., bloquée dans sa marche vers l'océan Indien entreprise des la fin de la seconde guerre mondiale, utilise ce sentiment de frustration pour affermir sa présence dans le nord de la mer Rouge, tout en se ménageant des positions dans le sud. Les Etats-Unis, qui tiennent la clé du Canal, hésitent à l'ouvrir pour ne pas accorder sans contreparties un succès stratégique aux Soviets. L'océan Inaien, tributaire du canal de Suez, a pris un nouveau visage et les trente nations qui le bordentdoivent se passer de ce trait d'union entre deux mondes qui facilitait leu r commerce et leurs relations avec l'Europe. Le contrôle de la gigantesque réserve d'énergie que représentent les pétroles du golfe Persique est au centre de la coexistence pacifique péniblement construite après les alertes dramatiques de Berlin, de Cuba et du Moyen-Orient. L'auteur trace dans une vaste fresque les contours de ces problêmes dramatiques qui mettront probablement en cause, au cours des dix prochaines années, le sort de l'humanité dans cette vaste zone ou se situe près de la moitié de la population mondiale. Il propose d'ouvrir le canal de Suez, premier acte de paix qui diminuerait l'agressivité des masses égyptiennes et mettrait en route la dynamique de la détente. Il suggère également de "neutraliser" la mer Rouge lors de laréouverture du Canal, pour ne pas retourner à une situation belliaène qui fut à l'origine de tous les conflits du Moyen-Orient depuis vingt-cinq ans." (from the back cover). Contents : 1. Six ans après. 2. Les rivalités en Afrique orientale. 3. Pétrole et golfe Persique. 4. Les imbroglios indien etasiatique. 5.
