In C.S. Forester's only novel about the American sailing navy, Captain Josiah Peabody, a Captain From Connecticut, and his crew outrun, outfox, and outmaneuver the superior British navy during the War of 1812, and work their Yankee ingenuity to aid the British to capture a rapacious pirate.
In this novel, the reader sees excitement, challenge, and the forces of human nature combine into a good read from Forester's masterful pen. A gripping sea adventure by a master of the genre.
