KENT, Alexander. Sword of Honour : [The New Bolitho]. London : Heinemann, (1998). First UK Printing. Pp. (10),1-278. 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "In March of 1814, Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho returns to England from several months' rigorous patrolling off the North American coast.The bitter and inconclusive war with the United States has not yet ended, but the news of Napoleon's defeat and abdication has stunned a navy and a nation bled by years of European conflict. Victory has been the impossible dream, and now, for Bolitho, a vision of the future and a more personal peace seems attainable. He remains, however, an admiral of England, and an unsympathetic Admiralty dispatches him to Malta. Perhaps this appointment is a compliment, perhaps a malicious ploy to keep him from the woman he loves and the freedom for which he craves. He cannot know, but the voice off duty speaks more insistently even than the voice of the heart, and in this familiar sea where both glory and tragedy have touched his life, Bolitho must confront the future, the renaissance of a hated tyrant, and the fulfilment of destiny." - from the dj.
