In the bitter February of 1813, with convoys from Canada and the Caribbean falling victim to American privateers, Sir Richard Bolitho returns to Halifax to pursue a war he knows cannot be won, but which neither Britain nor the United States can afford to lose. After nearly thirty years of almost continuous conflict with the old enemy, France, England and her Admiral desire only peace. But peace will not be found in the icy Canadian waters, where a young, angry nation asserts its identity, and men who share a common heritage die in close and bloody action. Nor is there peace for those who follow the Cross of St George: not for the embittered Adam, mourning his lover and his ship, nor for Rear-­Admiral Valentine Keen, who remains strangely indifferent to responsibility. Nor will there be peace from those who use this struggle between nations as an instrument of personal revenge

ABOUT THE BOOK “I heard the bullets whistle and, believe me, there is something charming in the sound.­” George Washington (age 22), 1754 At the age of 22, George Washington started the French and Indian War. Young Washington was haughty, almost obsessively status-­conscious, and plagued by a foolhardy desire to plunge into the midst of deadly combat. Although he was also characterized by many of the fine qualities modern Americans generally associate with him: bravery, intelligence, and grace under pressure, he could hardly have been called wise, or even prudent, in 1753, when the young surveyor led British troops into disputed territory near modern-­day Pittsburgh. Washington’s mission was to approach the French at Fort Duquesne, explain that the territory was technically part of Virginia and, thus, belonged to the British, and demand that the French withdraw. The first part of the mission went off track when French commander Captain LeGardeur de St. Pierre refused Britain’s . . .

The order of the Knights of St. John, which for some centuries played a very important part in the great struggle between Christianity and Mahomedanism, was, at its origin, a semi-­religious body, its members being, like other monks, bound by vows of obedience, chastity, and poverty, and pledged to minister to the wants of the pilgrims who flocked to the Holy Places, to receive them at their great Hospital—or guest house—at Jerusalem, dedicated to St. John the Baptist, and to defend them on their passage to and from the sea, against attack by Moslems. In a comparatively short time the constitution of the order was changed, and the Knights Hospitallers became, like the Templars, a great military Order pledged to defend the Holy Sepulchre, and to war everywhere against the Moslems. The Hospitallers bore a leading share in the struggle which terminated in the triumph of the Moslems, and the capture by them of Jerusalem. The Knights of St. John then established themselves at Acre, but . . .
