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.

Formulaic watery romance by the author who pretty much defined the genre.

I've read 6 of the Hornblower books, and really like those. This book was even better.

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!
