The Great War is three months old, and the Royal Navy is under attack by German U-boats and fast battle cruisers in the North Sea and distant oceans.
Since the Dutch Wars of the seventeenth century, the Buller family have played a leading part in keeping safe the nation and her possessions overseas.
And now, in this new trial, Captain Archibald Buller and his younger son Richard find themselves in the heat of the action, from the Falkland Islands to the Dardanelles, the Dogger Bank to Jutland.
But the Germans are not the Bullers’ only enemies…
Archy Buller’s enemies stem from within his service, which is riddled with internal feuds. At last he sets himself free, but only by embarking on the most hazardous job he has ever faced.
And Richard Buller is forced to come to terms with weaknesses within himself.
His ally in this silent struggle: the beautiful and intriguing nurse, Helena Cochrane.
Will the Bullers be able to combat their demons and make it safely home from this colossal war that was to end all wars?
In this gripping and dramatic sequel to <em>Buller’s Guns</em> and <em>Buller’s Dreadnought</em>, Richard Hough has once again set a strong narrative against real events. With a cast of leading personalities of the day – Churchhill and Lloyd George, Admirals Beatty, Jellicoe and Fisher and many more, Hough brings to life this thirty-knot story of the war at sea.
