In September 1931, the sailors of the Royal Navys Atlantic Fleet staged a mass mutiny at Invergordon, Scotland. In this historical fiction account, Charles Gidley Wheeler tells the life story of Frank Jannaway, a British sailor who finds himself at the focus of the mutiny.Sent into the Navy against his will, Frank experiences the hardship and injustice of life on the lower deck aboard a coal-burning cruiser on the China Station.

After serving with distinction at the Battle of Jutland, Frank reunites with Anita Yarrow, whom he has known since his youth, and who has been sent to Malta in disgrace. Anita helps Frank, her childhood hero, to gain promotion to officer rank. Years later, when Anitas brother, Roddy Yarrow, is bullying his officers aboard a cruiser of the Atlantic Fleet, Frank Jannaway is appointed to his ship. The result is tragedy.Encompassing an era from the Edwardian Golden Age to wartime Britain in the blitz, Jannaways Mutiny paints a vivid picture of love, ambition, self-sacrifice and heroism--and of the part that captains and admirals of the Royal Navy played in ringing down the final curtain on the British Empire.
