The Royal Navy is immobilised by mutiny and the only thing that's standing in the way of an invasion is a commander who is communicating with a fleet that isn't there.
While Great Britain’s major home fleets are immobilised by a vicious mutiny, Adam Duncan, commander of the North Sea Squadron, has to maintain a constant watch over the Dutch coast, where a powerful invasion force is ready to take advantage of Britannia’s weakest moment.
With ship to ship duels and fleet engagements, shipwrecks, storms and groundings True Colours maintains a relentless pace that culminates in one of the most devastating sea battles of the French Revolutionary War - the Battle of Camperdown.
