John Paul Jones, the tempestuous Scottish naval fighter, is the hero of this salty, man-sized novel. Jones had to fight a constant battle to pry food, funds, and supplies for his men from the Americans he was fighting for ... Using the French harbor of Brest as a base, Jones won powerful allies in the persons of two Frenchwomen. One helped him step his way through the complicated twists of international intrigue. The other, whose figure was that of a young girl but whose gray eyes were not, taught him what a safe haven a loving woman's heart was. John Paul Jones turned away from that warmth to sail into one of the great naval battles of all time. Commanding a sinking ship, Jones upset fantastic odds to board and defeat the powerful British Serapis in a rousing, bloody slugging match for a great victory of the American Revolution.
