Description

In Book 3 of The Oliver Quintrell Series, the captain faces life-threatening events over which he has no control. Ordered to sail to Gibraltar in the late summer of 1804, his ship quickly becomes hemmed in, not by Spanish gunboats or French ships of the line, but by the Quarantine Regulations which close the port around him. Unable to do anything to halt the loss of life from a raging epidemic, Quintrell strives to help save the Colony which is at its most vulnerable. This nautical adventure, set during the Napoleonic Wars, is based around actual events which occurred in Gibraltar between August and December 1804. 'Admiralty Orders' demonstrates how ignorance and prejudice can exist within a ship. It also presents a startling portrait of life at Gibraltar - a British settlement ruled by a military garrison where naval power is only an incidental force.show more
