Voyage of the Leopard from The Fortune of War Complete

on January 2, 2008, 12:00 am

The voyage of Jack Aubrey in command of the HMS Leopard described at the begining of The Fortune of War is mapped. This course was mostly guesswork based on retrospective comments made after the Leopard reaches Palau Batang (an almost certainly fictional port in the Dutch East Indies). Thanks mostly to Jaap from the Gunroom for his take on the course of the Leopard.
