in 1797 more than 50,000 men serving in 113 British ships refused orders, expelled their tyrranical officers and set up ship "democracy" in the longest and largest naval insurrection in history. All the while, George II, was gobbling his breakfast and going on a 20-mile stag chase. This is the history of that famous mutiny and of the darkest hours of the British navy. Fascinating reading.
