Inhaltsangabe: This is the tale of the bloodiest mutiny in the history of the Royal Navy - the butchering of the officers aboard His Majesty's Frigate HERMIONE 32 guns, in the West Indies in 1797. Having disposed of the captain of the frigate, Hugh Pigot, a brutal and sadistic commander and all his officers both guilty and innocent, the mutineers surrendered the ship to the Spanish.

Buchbeschreibung Pen & Sword 2003, 2003. 367pp. 11 ills. Maps. 19x13. An unmarked copy; Fine in pictorial card cover. Describes the mutiny of HMS Hermione in 1797 and the manhunt that ensued. Hermione's captain, Hugh Pigot, was both brutal and sadistic and the deaths of three sailors who fell down from the rigging were the result of Pigot's threats. The pent up hatred of the crew exploded in an orgy of revenge. They murdered Pigot and nine officers and sailing into port on the Spanish Main, handed their ship over to the enemy. The Hermione was refitted by the Spaniards but was immediately recaptured by the English. Meanwhile a single-minded manhunt sought out the mutinous crew from all corners of the world and twenty-four were hung from the yard arms of the King's ships. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 23046
