Description

How a Surgeon, a Mariner and a Gentleman solved the greatest medical mystery of the age of sail.
This is both a history and a detective story; it is about class, wilful ignorance and ludicrous decision making, and about how a cure for scurvy was found, ignored, lost, and finally implemented to the great benefit of all seafaring nations.
