Fresh from the dockyard, HMS Pandora is a 28-gun frigate, about to set sail to join the Mediterranean Fleet in December 1796...a time of unrest and discontent for Britain, the country being at war with the Revolutionary government of France. For Captain Banks, the harsh winter weather and the threat of a powerful French invasion force are not his only problems; he has an untried ship with an unpopular and bullying First Lieutenant, and a crew that contains a murderer...Culminating in the pivotal Battle of Cape St Vincent, "The Jackass Frigate" is based on historical fact, and includes notable figures of the period, including Jervis, Calder, Hardy, and Nelson.
