The first volume in the beloved Alan Lewrie Naval Adventures series by Dewey Lambdin
At the height of the American Revolution, our hero Alan Lewrie (seventeen-year-old bastard son of Sir Hugo Willoughby) has been shipped off to the Royal Navy to be out of sight and, all had hoped, lost at sea. Instead he took to the sea and ships, to war and leadership. And leaving his boyhood behind, he sets off on a brilliant naval career.
