Come on board for a great sea tale of those first Marines during the American Revolution. Theirs was a time of honor, and great personal sacrifice of those who fought to establish this great nation. If you are a fan of C.S. Forester's, Hornblower series, or of Alexander Kent's, Bolitho series, you will enjoy this novel. This is the first in what is sure to be a great collection of tales of the Marine Corps. They will follow the involvement of the Taggerts as they answer the call to arms as Marines throughout the history of our nation. Researched from the journals of Marines of the times, this proves to be an exciting tale of both land and sea action during the American Revolution. So join in, and like Sergeant Angus Lanigan said, "Aye, that's the beauty of being a Marine Lad! You'll be aboard a ship! No mud! We stay on board; we fight on board, no mucking about in the mud. The only time we go ashore is to visit some exotic port and get to know the pretty lassies!"
