Historical Setting: 1740 A.D. Circumnavigation of Globe

The Golden Ocean is a novel written in the 1950s by Patrick O'Brian. It tells the story of a novice midshipman, Peter Palafox, who joins Anson's 1740 circumnavigation of the globe. As with O'Brian's later Aubrey–Maturin series, the book contains a wealth of period detail, a smattering of historical figures including the midshipman Keppel who has a song for every occasion.

The same expedition is described from a different perspective in O'Brian's The Unknown Shore.
