The Only Victor Book 18:The Bolitho Novels

February 1806: Vice-Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho carries the news of Trafalgar to southern Africa, where he is to aid British ground forces in any way he can to retake Cape Town from the Dutch. Impatient to be home, Bolitho decides yet again that the boldest measures are best, and proves to the army that brave men do not die in vain. But there is little respite. After a defiant, all-too-brief reunion with his mistress, Lady Catherine Somervell, Bolitho undertakes a secret mission to Denmark, which nearly ends in disaster and further damages his sight. When diplomacy fails, he is eager to quit the land and joins the expedition to bombard Copenhagen in a new flagship, Black Prince.
