    Description
    In the year 1740, Commodore (later Admiral) Anson embarked on a voyage that would become one of the most famous exploits in British naval history. Sailing through poorly charted waters, Anson and his men circumnavigated the globe, encountering disease, disaster and astonishing success, and seizing a nearly incalculable sum of Spanish gold and silver. But only one of the five ships survived the voyage.

    This is the background to the first novel Patrick O'Brian ever wrote about the sea, a precursor to the critically acclaimed Aubrey-Maturin series. 'The Golden Ocean' shares the excitement and the rich humor of those books, invoking the eloquent style and attention to historical detail that O'Brian's admirers know so well.
