The Blooding of the Guns
Publication Date: 3 Jul 2017
A young sailor with the weight of the world on his shoulders, a brother in the line of fire, and the greatest naval battle of all time…
Jutland, 1916: In the icy waters of the North Sea, the Royal Navy awaits the challenge of the Kaiser’s High Sea Fleet.
Sub-lieutenant Nick Everard could never have imagined the terror he would face as his destroyer races to launch its torpedoes into the blazing guns of a horizon obscured by dreadnoughts.
But when the steering-gear on HMS Warspite jams, it is up to Nick, along with his brother, Hugh, to save thousands of lives.
Dramatic, action-packed and brimming with suspense, The Blooding of the Guns launches the epic career of Nicholas Everard.
