The main action in Ramage and the Freebooters is centered on St. George’s, Grenada. The above photo gives a panorama of the harbor. Fort George, seat of the military administration in the novel, is easily visible in the center background.

Fort George, then called Fort Rupert, was heavily damaged by US airstrikes during Operation URGENT FURY in October 1983.
