This book relates unknown and neglected aspects of a famous battle which took place off the coast of Mauritius in August of 1810.

Grand Port: Untold Stories unravels the most important mystery of the entire saga – the identity and role of the ‘black pilots’.

One  of these pilots, who ably served the British Navy in the battle, met a particularly tragic end. 

Many years later, this man’s fate would lead his former commander, Captain Nesbit Josiah Willoughby, on a quest for redemption. 

Captain Willoughby’s search in turn let to the revelation of ‘Zistwar Jouan’, the story of Jouan.

Using largely unpublished sources, such as the narratives of Captains Samuel Pym and Lucius Curtis, and private letters of participants, Grand Port: Untold Stories restores the voice of the unjustly forgotten.
