A Battle Won
S. Thomas Russell
Winter 1793—the Reign of Terror rips through revolutionary France, as every able-bodied man is pressed
into military service. The city of Toulon has turned itself over to the British, the red ensign of
Lord Admiral Hood's flagship Victory, offering a defiant symbol of protection to its people.
In Plymouth, Master and Commander Charles Hayden is summoned to the Port Admiral—his orders are to
return to the ill-fated frigate HMS Themis. Placed in temporary command, he is to join
the escort for the last convoy of the season—braving the wintry seas to supply Hood's fleet
in the Mediterranean.
Hayden's uncanny knack for attracting the attention of the French navy sees the Themis thrown
back into action only hours out of port. Soon Hayden's captaincy and military skills are stretched
to the utmost as he finds himself at the vanguard of this brutal clash of empires.
Following the top ten bestselling Under Enemy Colours, A Battle Won is the
brilliant second installment in the epic maritime adventures of Charles Hayden—a new
masterpiece in the tradition of Bernard Cornwell and Patrick O'Brian.
