Overview

A story of pursuit, retribution and disaster at sea

The story of the mutiny of the crew of the Bounty led by Fletcher Christian is well known. That story and Captain Bligh's endurance in an open boat is available from Leonaur. The Royal Navy, however, were not about to allow such an outrage go unpunished and it despatched HMS Pandora to bring the culprits to account. The Pandora's voyage-told here in two contrasting accounts-is no less remarkable than that of the Bounty itself. After many trials including the capture of some of the mutineers it too ended in disaster. An essential book for all those interested in the Royal Navy during the great age of sail.
