Ben Hughes is a teacher and lecturer. He has spent many years living and travelling in South America and exploring its colonial history, and he a special interest in the Napoleonic era and naval warfare. His previous books include Conquer or Die!, They Shall Not Pass!, The Siege of Fort William Henry and The British Invasion of the River Plate 1806-7. It's an event that is (probably wrongly) considered a humiliation or a triumph, depending on one's point of view. In reality, it wasn't that big of a deal, but Porter made his career out of it.

His cock strained and shifted in his breeches like a swivel gun. But he was going to keep it there for just a while longer. Only until he could deal with this untimely intrusion,. get back to Lizzie, and get her as primed and loaded as he felt. His restraint was all but gone. Yet, as he came to the foot of the kitchen stairs, the sight of a large assortment of baggage, piled haphazardly and blocking the kitchen door, stopped him in his tracks. A collection of trunks, to be exact. She must have arranged this.

Overview:  On 26 October 1812, during the war between Britain and the United States, the frigate USS Essex set sail on the most remarkable voyage in the early history of the US navy. After rounding Cape Horn, she proceeded to systematically destroy the British South Seas whaling fleet. When news reached the Royal Navy’s South American station at Rio de Janeiro, HMS Phoebe was sent off in pursuit. So began one of the most extraordinary chases in naval history.
In Pursuit of the Essex follows the adventures of both hunter and hunted as well as a host of colourful characters that crossed their paths. Traitorous Nantucket whalers, Chilean revolutionaries, British spies, a Peruvian viceroy and bellicose Polynesian islanders all make an appearance. The brilliant yet vainglorious Captain Porter of the Essex, his nemesis Captain James Hillyar of the Phoebe, and two young midshipmen, David Farragut and Allen Gardiner, are the principal narrators.
From giant-tortoise turning expeditions on the Galapagos to the perils of rounding Cape Horn, via desperate skirmishes with spear-toting natives on the Marquesas and a defeated duellist bleeding his life out onto black, volcanic sands, the reader is immersed in the fantastical world of the British and American seamen who struggled for supremacy over the world’s oceans in the sunset years of the age of sail.
Ben Hughes’s graphic account is a work of non-fiction, yet reads like a novel, from the opening view of the Essex preparing for her cruise on the Delaware River to the story’s bloody denouement in Valparaiso Bay.
