On August 25, 1833, the British convict ship Amphitrite, filled with more than one hundred women prisoners and their children along with a crew of thirteen, left London for a convict colony in New South Wales. Less than a week later, all but three died when a savage storm battered their ship to pieces on the beach at Boulogne--in sight of hundreds of horrified onlookers. Inexplicably, the captain, John Hunter, had refused offers of aid from the shore. Sensational news coverage of the calamity prompted an Admiralty investigation to find out who was responsible. The suspicion was that Hunter and the surgeon aboard rejected assistance because they feared the women would escape custody. Some blamed the doctor's wife because she had refused to go ashore in the same boat with the convicts so no boat was launched. Colorfully set in the political and social context of early 19th century Great Britain, this account of the shipwreck is peopled with a fascinating cast of characters that includes John Wilks, the Paris correspondent of a London newspaper whose reporting triggered public emotions; Lord Palmerston, the British foreign secretary; William Hamilton, the British consul who led the investigation; Sarah Austin, a British expatriate whose heroism the night of the wreck merits an award; and a Prussian prince. Drawing from government records in England, Scotland, and France, and from contemporary reports, Andrew Jampoler spins a memorable sea tale that is entirely true yet 19th century,england,europe,historical study and educational resources,history,military,modern (16th-21st centuries),naval,ships,social history History, Naval Institute Press

New York, Castle Books 2002., reprint of 2001 edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 8 1/2, VG/VG CONDITION, xiv, 495 pages. ------------------------------- Life Before the Mast presents twenty-two eyewitness accounts of the battles, the hardships, and the excitement of naval service during the French Revolutionary War (1793-1802), the Napoleonic War (1803-1815), and the War of 1812 — an age when combat at sea was won by skill, endurance, and sheer courage, and when Britain's command of the sea was thought by many to be unshakable. --------------------------------------Here is the reality behind the popular novels of sea fiction, gathered from memoirs, diaries, and personal letters. Exhilarating accounts of decisive naval actions, gunpowder and smoke, piracy and shipwrecks, are complemented by revealing glimpses of daily life aboard a man o'war, with its weevils and whippings, storms and salt pork. Fascinating and humorous, often poignant, this book relates the realities of naval warfare through the words of those who put their lives on the line — the officers and men of the English, French, and American navies., Naval Institute Press, 2010-12-01.
