Description
In 1740, the first year of the war with Spain, Commodore George Anson set sail with a squadron of six British warships. His secret mission: to seize the legendary Spanish galleon on her yearly voyage from Acapulco to Manila laden with Peruvian silver, "the prize of all the oceans." It was to be four years of hardship, disaster, mutiny, and, finally, heroism. Historian Glyn Williams's The Prize of All the Oceans shapes Anson's dramatic voyage into a powerful narrative threaded with incisive analysis and commentary, giving readers a vivid portrait of an intrepid commander who never wavered in his resolve to capture the prize and return home triumphant. Glyn Williams tells the full story for the first time in a book that will rivet history buffs and armchair survivalists alike.
