Send a Gunboat Book 10:Modern Naval Fiction Library

The orders from the Admiralty to the Captain were explicit. He was to take his ship to the small island of Santu, which lay under threat of invasion from the Communist mainland of China, and evacuate the British colony there.

The ship, however, was the flat-bottomed, antiquated River gunboat HMS Wagtail, waiting in a Hong Kong harbor for the disgrace of the breaker’s hammer to overtake her. And her captain, Justin Rolfe, embittered by the verdict of a court-martial, knew that the assignment offered more than escape from misery and humiliation. It was a reprieve for himself and his ship.

“A fine nautical adventure, a rattling yarn in the best tradition of navy fiction.”--Birmingham Mail

”The adventures ashore and afloat are as brilliantly pictured as the general plot is cleverly conceived. Character-drawing, action, Rolfe’s conquest of his worse self--all go to make much more than a notable thriller.”--Birmingham Post
