 About the Book 

Vice Admiral of the Blue William Bligh, FRS, RN was an officer of the British Royal Navy and a colonial administrator. A historic mutiny occurred during his command of HMS Bounty in 1789- Bligh and his loyal men made a remarkable voyage to Timor, 3,618 nautical miles (6,701 km- 4,164 mi), after being set adrift in the Bountys launch by the mutineers. Fifteen years after the Bounty mutiny, he was appointed Governor of New South Wales in Australia, with orders to clean up the corrupt rum trade of the New South Wales Corps, resulting in the so-called Rum Rebellion.
