SummaryAdd a Summary
Jack Hoyton probably had romantic visions of heroism and derring-do when he enlisted as a member of the British Royal Navy. Hardly more than a kid, those dreams were knocked flat pretty fast. Day in the navy consist of plain hard work, no bones about it. It takes Jack a while to get a feel for the job, but he does just in time for some skirmishes with the French. Soon it looks as though his HMS Defender may have a hand in turning the tide against Napoleon’s own seagoing vessels. That is, unless they fall into a trap created by one of their own traitorous sailors. Factual information about life on the sea appears in the sidebars of each page. A Bibliography and Recommended Reading list appears at the book’s close.
