Unputdownable naval action from the master of the sea story - 'In Stockwin's hands the sea story will continue to entrance readers across the world' Guardian 1807. Captain Sir Thomas Kydd's famous sea action aboard Tyger has snatched his reputation from ignominy. He is the hero of the hour. But though Britain's Navy remains imperious, a succession of battles has seen Napoleon victorious on mainland Europe. In an attempt to prevent the French from taking control of Denmark's navy, Kydd's great friend Nicholas Renzi - now Lord Farndon - is sent on a desperate diplomatic mission to persuade the Danes to give up their fleet to Britain. But the Danes are caught between two implacable forces and will not yield, opting instead for the inferno of battle . . .

Copenhagen Harbor is on fire . . . 1807. Captain Sir Thomas Kydd resumes command of Tyger and is ordered to join a great armada on a desperate mission to pressure the Danish Crown Prince to turn his fleet over to Britain before Napoleon has the opportunity to seize it. On a parallel mission Nicholas Renzi--the Lord Farndon, also Kydd's best friend and brother-in-law--fails in an effort at using diplomacy to persuade the Danes to give up their fleet to Britain for the duration of the war. Neutral Denmark now controls the straits through which the entire Baltic trade passes and the French army is mustering at her borders. If the Napoleon manages to take control of the Danish navy--France's already-considerable naval forces may allow him to invade the English mainland and achieve hegemony over all of Europe. A fiery inferno--the Second Battle of Copenhagen--ensues.

This study discloses for the first time the source of nearly every line of T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land, illuminating not only the poem's obscurities but also the poet's emotional, philosophical, and literary proclivities and the creative process by which this great work evolved.
