It’s 1775 and the American Revolution has begun. In England, The Royal Navy has one eye on the rebellious colonials and the other on their traditional enemy, the French. Two teenagers- Jaco Jacinto from Charleston, SC and Darren Smythe from Gosport, England – become midshipmen n their respective navies. Jacinto wants to help his countrymen win their independence and Smythe has wanted to be a Royal Navy officer since he was a little boy. Their stories take you from the cold waters off Nova Scotia and New England and Scotland to the warm ones in the Caribbean. They learn from good captains and bad ones in the naval school of hard knocks as they deal with politics and the enemy which is sometimes within their service. Jacinto and Smythe are mortal enemies until Smythe is captured by Jacinto and then they become friends. When Smythe is released, they both know that they will be called upon to battle each other.
