That is, during the period of hostility between Britain and France, when British privateers would have regarded French whalers as fair game. See the description below from the book’s rear cover and from the book’s introduction. William Morris was first mate of the whaler, and William Mann was the ship’s carpenter on the English privateer.
Only ever published in paperback.
The publisher appears to have been owned by the authors, but searches on the internet lead us to believe it is no longer operating. The book is therefore out of print.
