Abstract:

Heartbroken by his son's death, fallen in action during his first combat, an old man of the sea decides to write his memoires, which he recalls from the notes he once wrote in his navigation logbook. And so, we enter the life of Pepe the Helmsman, a marine under Captain Manuel Azueta who, among other ships, performed honorably in the distinguished corvette Zaragoza and also the Guerrero warship, the largest, most powerful, and modern warship the Mexican navy had at the beginning of the 20th century; a marine who also joined the Naval School cadets in defense of Veracruz against US invasion. In this fascinating historical novel, José Manuel Villalpando explores the unknown world of Mexican warships and the stories of the men who sailed them across the vast seas with great courage and honor. As stated by the author, it is "a deeply human story in which answering the call of duty is not a cold automatic response, but rather a deeply intense emotion by those involved, where their joys and sufferings, angers and pleasures are part of their nature as men and as sailors."
