In the dark days of the War of 1812, the U.S. Navy frigate Nathan Hale is dispatched to do battle with the British whaling fleet in the Pacific Ocean. Aboard is Eastburn Cornwell, the scion of an upper-class New England family, forced into service with the Marines by his domineering father. Along the way, Cornwell learns his craft as he and his shipmates do battle with the British, with each other, and with the unbalanced captain. A man who, for his own terrible reasons, wishes death to all who oppose him. Marblehead Neck: A Novel of the War of 1812
