The Fourth Book in Alaric Bond's Fighting Sail Series Disillusioned by the lack of opportunity in the Royal Navy, Lieutenant King opts for a spell with the Honourable East India Company. But, a trip in an Indiaman is anything but the easy option when his captain is revealed to be an old enemy. With the added perils of privateers, storms, and the might of the French Navy, he finds there is just as much excitement in the merchant service, and wonders why he ever chose to cut and run. "Alaric Bond has stepped into the first rank of writers of historic naval fiction." "Alaric Bond has laid the groundwork for a great series of Age of Fighting Sail novels and I can only hope that the next one comes soon."

His Majesty’s Ship The Jackass Frigate True Colours The Fighting Sail Series gives an insight into the world of the seamen and naval officers who fought during the Revolutionary War, a chance to experience an exciting period of history, to view the men and the ships, and sample the extremes of life at sea. The novels are set during the Revolutionary wars but differ from the normal Hornblower/Aubrey sagas in that there is no “hero who becomes an admiral”, rather characters from all divisions of the ship are featured, some to prosper, while others fail; many will continue in future books.

Despite the apparent dominance of gunnery, in the age of sail sea fights were often concluded by boarding actions - desperate and bloody hand-to-hand melees where edged weapons rather than firearms were the deciding factor. The particular needs of naval close-quarter combat produced distinctive versions of axes, pikes and cutlasses (not to mention the great variety of officers' fighting, presentation and dress swords) and this book surveys in full detail the whole gamut of such weapons as used in the Royal Navy and the new naval service of the United States. It concentrates on development from the outbreak of the American Revolution in 1775 to the end of the US Civil War in 1865, the apogee and decline of fighting sail, revealing how British weapons were initially a major source of inspiration for the American navy, an influence which eventually declined as the United States developed its own arms industry. Using surviving examples, artifacts recovered by archaeology, and documentary sources, the book devotes individual chapters to shipboard axes, pikes and other polearms, and both officers' and enlisted men's swords and cutlasses. It also looks at the decoration of swords and the significance of the motifs used, concluding with a section on process of manufacturing and the organizations involved. Heavily illustrated with examples from Europe and America, Naval Edged Weapons is an accessible introduction for the general reader, but also provides a useful overview for the specialist.

A powerful ship, a questionable crew, and a mission that must succeed. In the spring of 1795 HMS Vigilant, a 64 gun ship-of-the-line, is about to leave Spithead as senior escort to a small, seemingly innocent, convoy. The crew is a jumble of trained seamen, volunteers, and the sweepings of the press; yet, somehow, the officers have to mold them into an effective fighting unit before the French discover the convoy’s true significance. Based on historical fact, His Majesty’s Ship will take you into the world of Nelson’s Navy, and captivate you all the way to it’s gripping conclusion. “Bond has an extraordinary talent for describing the sights and sounds of an 18th Century man-of-war. When you finish this book you genuinely feel like you have been there—and no novel can receive higher praise than that.” The First Book in the Fighting Sail Series. Second Edition
