(From the publisher):
The life of a powder monkey on board ship was hard and dangerous. Reloading the big guns in the drifting, acrid smoke and shattering cannonfire. Any moment might bring hidden death.
This was the life George Abercrombie Fox chose for himself at an early age. Serving in the Royal Navy, he was soon fighting in the war against America. But restlessly searching for glory, he endured where few men could.
This is the story of Fox's early years. An essential part of the thrilling and best-selling series.
