Rodney & the Breaking of the Line

On 12 April 1782, the British Fleet under Admiral Lord George Rodney defeated the French at Les Iles des Saintes, in the Caribbean. Rodney employed a novel tactic of breaking through the enemy line. While this was the culmination of a distinguished but turbulent career, controversially Rodney was heavily criticised for not pursuing the vanquished foe, yet they never again posed a threat to British interests in the West Indies. This book examines the life and career of one of the Royal Navy's most formidable figures, who, while brilliant, made enemies all too easily.
