Number 7 in the series.
A distinctly over-the-top adventure. Sent to the West Indies carrying orders for the Admiral about a secret mission, Ramage is not assigned the secret mission, and is instead sent to blockade Fort Royal (while the Admiral's favorite goes on the secret mission). In a couple of weeks, Ramage accomplishes more than the previous two people assigned the duty did in more than 6 months. They didn't even have a clear chart of where the batteries were located.
Low casualty figures, too, for a change.
