Close Quarters

(1977)
(Book 14 in the Fox series)
A novel by

 
 
George Abercrombie Fox is in command of Alkon, a lightly armed Navy transport carrying wounded from the battle in Egypt back to England.

The Alkon has an encounter with Spanish gunboats before Gibraltar. Outgunned and outmanned, only Fox's tactical genius can save his ship and crew.

On convoy duty to England Fox captures the Archimede - a French submersible and its inventor Marcel Bruant. Fox soon puts the ingenious device to good use, rescuing an old friend and Indiamen merchant ships captured by French privateers.

FOX IS NOT THE NOBLE HERO OF TRADITIONAL FICTION. FOX IS A FIGHTING MAN WHO TRANSCENDS HEROISM - HE DOESN'T CARE HOW HE WINS AS LONG AS HE WINS. HE'S MEAN, CUNNING AND MOST VICIOUS WHEN TRAPPED. THERE'S NO WAY TO OUTFOX FOX!
