CONQUEST

“Comparable to . . . the naval tales of the great Patrick O’Brian, Stockwin’s engaging novel reveals the author’s acumen for the history and spirit of the time” – Publishers Weekly

Victory at the Battle of Trafalgar removed the spectre of invasion and England is now free to seek conquests and colonies in the furthest reaches of the world.

Captain Kydd joins an expedition to take Dutch-held Cape Town, a strategic imperative to secure the rich trade-route to India. But even if the British can defeat the enemy and take possession of the capital, there is still more fighting to be done.

Kydd and his men must defend the fragile colony from attacks by the enemy from all sides, while braving the wild beasts and hostile environment of Africa’s vast and savage hinterland.
