"At last young Lord Ramage gets promotion: his latest orders from the Admiralty are addressed to the Royal Navy's newest and most junior captain. But they are routine -- to take his frigate (and an untried crew) to the West Indies. There the Commander-in-Chief gives him and the Juno frigate blockade duty off Martinique -- to make sure the French do not get ships or supplies into Fort Royal. Dull duty foran enterprising young officer -- except that war is rarely routine and nev er predicatble: a sudden and daring night attack by French privateers triesout the Juno and her new captain. Ramage is intrigued by the Diamond Rock, an enormous tooth rising sheer out of the sea a couple of miles off the co ast, deserted by just habitable. Is that barren island key to the blockade?Are the French planning to fight a heavily defended convoy through to save Martinique? What can the tiny Juno frigate do to smash the French attempt? There are plenty of questions for Ramage who knows that the Admiralty can always replace reckless captains but not ships lost recklessly. Should he risk the Juno, her men and his own life on what the Admiralty would judge a foolhardy gamble if he fails? Should he play it safely and bolt for help from the Commander-in-Chief?" - from the dj. Vg in price-clipped dj. 65.00
