A Flag of Truce by David Donachie

Revolution. Bloodshed. Glory

1793. Returning triumphant from Corsica, Lieutenant John Pearce receives a mixed welcome. But with the siege of Toulon escalating in violence and the French Revolutionary Army preparing to attack, all thoughts of revenge must be put on hold as Pearce is entrusted with a dangerous mission. When their assignment goes awry, it is up to Pearce and his comrades to prevent the inevitable bloodshed, but challenging the Revolutionaries as well as their navy could be a fatal mistake…

Set against the backdrop of the bloody French Revolution, A Flag of Truce brilliantly combines a gripping adventure with intricate historical detail, to explosive effect.

An interesting story with a most unlikely hero.  This story takes place during the French revolution and while it paints a picture of the extremes of  radicals I find the story line absurd. The hero in the story, John Pearce, as a seaman and then lieutenant, promoted by the king for heroism, speaks rudely to various admirals as though they were nobodies.   He would have been punished severely.  He is just not real. Still, I liked the book and the story did hold my interest.
