    In 1789 HMS Bounty under the command of Lieutenant William Bligh sailed off on a voyage to Tahiti in the South Pacific to obtain breadfruit trees for transplanting in the Caribbean. After a long, difficult voyage, in which a passage of Cape Horn had to be abandoned, the ship finally reached its destination. Within a few months, the Bounty was loaded with breadfruit plants and fresh provisions. But the return voyage never materialized.

    You will find this book, although an exciting narrative, has an unpolished feel, because it was published in June of 1918, while Mr. Hall was a captive in a German POW camp. When he was captured behind enemy lines, the book was still a work in progress.

    Det er måske den mest enestående sørejse i søfartens historie, som kaptajn William Bligh gennemførte, da han i 1789 efter mytteriet på hans skib H.M.S. Bounty sammen med 18 besætningsmedlemmer blev efterladt midt ude på Stillehavet i en åben båd. I I kamp med havet er det underlæge Thomas Ledward, der beretter, hvordan kaptajn Bligh førte Bountys lille, ubevæbnede og overlæssede barkasse 4000 miles fra Venskabsøerne til Timor.

    Captain Bligh leaves London for Tahiti in charge of his crew on the Bounty. At sea he shows himself to be a brutal tyrant and cruel whilst enforcing discipline which includes flogging the men, cutting rations and over zealously working them too hard. On the return voyage, first mate Fletcher Christian, wonderfully played here by Orson Welles, leads the crew to mutiny and sets Bligh and his supporters adrift on a boat. What they did not count on is the Captain's return in this gripping tense drama.
