Reviews for The Ionian Mission
Review - Ionian Mission, The
Stephen and Diana set up housekeeping in London. They are sent in the old, decaying ship-of-the-line Worcester to join the blockade of Toulon. Stephen goes ashore for a few missions. When the Worcester develops huge leaks after the fleet chases the French into port, Jack is given the Surprise and sent to the Ionian Sea. He visits three local rulers and has to decide which one to supply with cannon to aid in an attack on a French fort. When he picks one, another attacks the transports carrying the cannons with two ships. Jack chases and in an underdog position manages to capture one and sink the other.
