This was Marryat's first novel written as a narration by Frank Mildmay whose rapid rise in the ranks of the Royal Navy followed the author's own career.
Frank Mildmay is a rogue and a rascal who cuts a memorable swathe as he moves up the ranks of the early 19th-century Royal Navy. Whether seducing pretty girls ashore, braving hurricanes at sea or scrambling aboard a French privateer with cutlass bared, Mildmay and his adventures live on!
