The second in the Jack Vizzard series of historical fiction
following the events of First Fleet.
Lieutenant Vizzard is sent to the coast of France as that turbulent country declares war on Britain. His mission: escort and protect a government agent carrying valuable intelligence of vital importance to Prime Minister Pitt’s government. Captured by a traitor, Vizzard must first escape France, then survive, then make his way home across dangerous waters. Dare he trust the beautiful Frenchwoman who befriends him? Or will treachery be repeated?
Vizzard’s work leads directly to the battle known in France as Le Combat de Prairial. In Britain the engagement will become known as The Glorious First of June, but for Jack Vizzard it will be the day that heroes and cowards die together.
