The Glorious First

By M Howard Morgan

Action & adventure, Historical fiction, General fiction | Paperback, eBook


The second in the Jack Vizzard adventures following from First Fleet. War with Revolutionary France takes Lieutenant Vizzard to the coasts of France. He is to escort a government agent known to carry valuable intelligence of vital importance to Prime Minister Pitt's government. Captured by a traitor he must escape France. Can he trust the beautiful Frenchwoman who befriends him? His work leads directly to the first fleet action of the Revolutionary War with France and to the battle known in Britain as The Glorious First of June where heroes and cowards will die together.



M Howard Morgan is a nom de plume of Malcolm H Mendey. Born in Carmarthen, the son of a 'Brylcreem Boy' father and a German au pair, he has travelled extensively throughout Europe, the Far East, Oceania and N. America. Following an initial career in civil law he moved into loss adjusting, representing underwriters at Lloyd's of London and multi-national insurers. An interest in genealogy resulted in the discovery of an ancestor who was a marine with the First Fleet to Australia in 1788. Always a student of history, that triggered an ever more consuming investigation into the history of the Golden Age of Sail and tangentially, the conflicts with Revolutionary and Napoleonic France. Glorious First is his second novel and is set in 1794 and the first major naval engagement between the two European powers of France and Britain, known in Britain as The Glorious First of June. A qualified boatmaster, a failed golfer, enthusiast of aviation, consumer of fine wines, beers and spirits; he has no interest in celery. Howard Morgan now lives New Zealand overlooking the Pacific Ocean with his beautiful wife, approximately two of four children and two fabulous Border Collies.
