About the book:

Amid the Napoleonic Wars (1793-1815), France and Britain dispatched rival voyages of discovery to complete the mapping of Australia and "advance the limits of science." Led by naval captains Nicolas Baudin and Matthew Flinders, both expeditions carried safe-conducts protecting them from seizure by the ships of the opposing navies. Ill-Starred Captains is the first book to explore the two voyages together in detail. Published in association with the Royal Geographical Society of South Australia, it represents a major addition to the records of maritime history.
