Summary (From the publisher):

It's the winter of 1776, a year that brings with it a fiery new spirit of colonial independence. A decade of simmering tensions have finally come to a boil, and the rebel government in Philadelphia, determined to cast off the chains of British tyranny, has authorized the creation of the United Stated 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 Captain Isaac Biddlecomb, sets sail on a daring mission to raid the British store of arms on New Providence Island in the Bahamas. But even as the captain takes the lead in the first amphibious assault in American naval history, he discovers that his greatest enemy is an undisciplined crew led to the brink of mutiny by their sectional hatreds. Beset by treachery and betrayal, in danger of losing his command and his ship, Biddlecomb must find a way to unite his men against a cruel and common foe... as the Royal Navy prepares to sink the Charlemagne - and the revolution - under the merciless blasts of its guns.
