Sloop of War

April 1778. English Harbour, Antigua. As the French enter the American war of Independence in earnest, young Richard Bolitho is given his first command: Sparrow - a fast, well-armed fighting sloop. At last he has the chance to prove his abilities as a junior captain.

But he faces other challenges too, threats as real and deadly as the enemy itself.
