1796. Pearce and his wife Emily are in living in Bath, when Minister of War
Henry Dundas turns up and suggests a second mission to the Vendee, this time

British naval and military commanders who will accompany them. The
proposed expedition looks promising and Pearce takes the bait. Once at sea,
however, Pearce and his crew encounter a French fleet and an indecisive battle
ensues off the Ile de Groix. Pearce, accompanied by his faithful Pelicans, must
go ashore into dangerous territory to check the lay of the land, find the allies
and seek to co-ordinate actions in a situation where the forces of the Republic
are gathering to crush the rebels ...
