Overview

Here we find Captain Josiah Peabody, the American hero in Forester's book about the war of 1812, cruising the Atlantic and Caribbean wrecking destruction and confounding the British as he disturbs the West Indian trade. Making a difficult passage between keeping his powerful frigate of the Constitution class free from major damage while still forcing the world's most powerful navy to expend ships to try and control him, Captain Peabody works his Yankee ingenuity to aid the British to capture a rapacious pirate. The grasp of Peabody's grim childhood on his character is broken by his discovery of love with the beautiful and understanding daughter of the French Governor of Martinique. As Peabody grows aware of, and warms to, human emotions he previously thought sinful, he becomes a better man, and a better captain, who even looks forward to a world without fighting. 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 pleasant change from the Royal Navy

    Having read the Hornblower series about pressed sailors, doing duty for King and Country, it was refreshing to hear how the Fledgling US Navy was manned. This would have made an interesting series to develop.

    Sailing in the infant age of America

    Great book as per C.S. Foresters habit situates an early U.S.N. man into great peril and adventure. Sailing from the snowy bays of New York to the Caribbean Isles, this book has history, science, and even unsought love for The Captain of the Connecticut!
