With Napoleon Bonaparte at the height of his powers, the Mediterranean can be safely considered exclusive French territory. So when Captain Ramage and his crew are sent alone into Mediterranean waters, they can expect to be outnumbered. But it is the French who discover they have an enemy they had not bargained for.

I would recommend this book as another interesting adventure by Pope, with a new twist, in capturing a signal station to get a naval advantage.
Unlike Obrien's Master and Commander series, Pope does not like to kill off his characters. There is a lot of action and strategy in Pope without all the gory blood letting.
