After the passing of the 1807 Slave Trade Abolition Act, the Royal Navy sustained a 60 year campaign against slaving, despite inadequate resources, disease and hostile climatic conditions. This book shows how Britain made a lonely, costly and mainly thankless stand against the evils of slaving in the 19th century.
