The battle for Empire rages in Egypt
The thrilling second novel in the William John Hazzard series, following Napoleon's Run.
Malta, June 1798. Captured by the French after hurling himself into the enemy ranks, Hazzard is now a prisoner of Bonaparte and his nemesis, the spy-catcher Derrien. He has, however, uncovered the true target of Napoleon’s invasion fleet: Egypt.Their bold plan is to cut open the ancient Suez Canal and then sail through the Red Sea to attack India, the jewel in England’s crown.
As Napoleon’s great armada prepares to sail, Nelson’s fleet, still scouring the Mediterranean in vain for the French, is nowhere to be seen. If Hazzard can’t find a way to stop this – no-one will.
But help comes from an unexpected quarter – the missing Admiralty agent…
From the shores of Malta to the truly epic encounter of the Battle of the Nile – this is the explosive beginning of the French invasion of Egypt. Never give up the boat.
