Publisher's Summary

The lieutenant is summoned by the Admiralty and given command of the brig Triton. But like the rest of the Navy, Triton's crew has mutinied. Sympathizing with some of their complaints, Ramage also knows that if he fails to deliver three sealed dispatches to admirals off Brest and Cadiz, and in the Caribbean, he will become a convenient scapegoat.

    "The Great Mutiny"

    This is book number three in the Ramage series. This series of historical novels are based on the British Admiralty records of the Napoleonic era.

    Lt. Ramage is given command of the brig HMS Triton with orders to deliver a warning to the three offshore fleets that the fleet in Homeport has mutinied. Ramage’s first job is to get the Triton underway but surprise the crew has also mutinied alone with those of the homeport fleet. After delivering the message to the three fleets Ramage is to report to the Caribbean for further others. As usual Ramage uses creative tactics to overcome his problems.

    The book is well written with lots of sea action. Pope does not shy away from describing the harsh realities of life at sea during the Napoleonic wars. Pope explains how the poor treatment of sailors led to the great mutiny of the Home Fleet. The author also goes into detail about the slave trade. The book is full of action and is an exciting fun read that is based on historical fact. Steven Crossley narrated the book.
