    This is the first of William H White s trilogy concerning American naval action before and during the War of 1812 One of the primary issues that caused the U.S to declare war on Britain was the British navy s practice of stopping American ships at sea and pressing American sailors to augment their own crews They alleged that they were taking only British sailors who had deserted, but in fact, many of the impressed men were Americans.This novel features Isaac Biggs, a 20 year old sailor on This is the first of William H White s trilogy concerning American naval action before and during the War of 1812 One of the primary issues that caused the U.S to declare war on Britain was the British navy s practice of stopping American ships at sea and pressing American sailors to augment their own crews They alleged that they were taking only British sailors who had deserted, but in fact, many of the impressed men were Americans.This novel features Isaac Biggs, a 20 year old sailor on an American merchantman headed with a cargo for a Swedish owned port in the Caribbean Biggs is captain of the foremast topsail crew and is a bright sailor, studying navigation in order to advance tosenior positions on the ship Bings ship is stopped at sea by HMS Orpheus, and Biggs along with two other members of the American crew are pressed into British naval service Thus begins the story of this novel, featuring, unlike many other naval historical fiction series, a man who is a crew member before the mast not an officer or a warrant officer This book has lots of descriptive narratives of sailing on board a tall sailing ship as well as on a schooner It highlights the difference in customs and discipline between the British navy, which was heavy on flogging, and the American naval vessels, where severe discipline was seldom, if ever, used There are a number of good battle scenes between ships at sea in this first novel.All in all, this is a fun and easy read especially if you enjoy historical naval fiction of the Napoleonic period Unlike most series set in this period, this particular trilogy features the U.S navy, not the British
