The third enthralling instalment of the Revolution at Sea series A powerful maritime adventure in the epic, true-to-life tradition of Patrick O'Brian. In the winter of 1776, a decade of simmering tensions finally comes to the boil. The rebel government of Philadelphia, determined to cast off the chains of British tyranny, has authorised the creation of the United States Navy - a brazen act of American aggression against the greatest maritime power in the world. Still battered from her fight in Bermudan waters, the brig-of-war Charlemagne under the command of Captain Isaac Biddlecomb sets sail on a daring mission to raid the British store of arms on New Providence Island in the Bahamas. But he finds that his greatest enemy is an undisciplined crew on the brink of mutiny, and, beset by betrayal and treachery, Biddlecomb must find a way of uniting his men against a cruel and common the British Navy prepares to sink the Charlemagne under the merciless blasts of its guns.
