Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First edition, first print hardback of BADGE OF GLORY by Douglas Reeman and published by Hutchinson & Co. in 1982. Signed and dated 'To Jerry in Friendship' by Reeman on the title page.

The book is in very good condition (blue cloth boards with gold lettering to spine) with light bumping to the bottom corner of the front board and top and bottom corner of the back board, very light creasing to the top of the spine and back board. The book is in a very good unclipped dust jacket with light creasing to the top of the spine and back cover. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

Internationally famous for his novels of World War II, Douglas Reeman also has a huge world following as Alexander Kent for his novels of the 19th-century navy - the Richard Bolitho books. Now he has extended his remarkable talents as a storyteller in a colourful and dramatic new saga spanning 150 years, about a seafaring family called the Blackwoods and the service in which successive generations make their career - the Royal Marines.

Badge of Glory, the first novel in the series, opens in August 1850, when Captain Philip Blackwood rejoins the ship, HMS Audacious. It is peacetime and although sometimes engaged in small overseas campaigns the world's mightiest navy has settled into a routine of tradition and ceremonial. With the coming of the steam age many younger officers are pressing for a change and modernisation whereas their superiors for the most part see coal-fired ships as a challenge to their own power.

Blackwood soon discovers that he is about to get all the action he needs as the squadron's new admiral receives orders to sail to West Africa and stamp out remaining strongholds of slavery. Blackwood is also made to realize that there is more to leading his men than holding firm the line of battle. Love, hate, ambition and envy are forces which he must also confront. Per Mare - Per Terram is the Royal Marines' proud motto, and in the heat of Africa and later in the bitter war of the Crimea Blackwood and his men must obey it without question.

366 pages, plus Acknowledgement.
