As the war in Great Britain heats up, & cries for independence ring through the chambers of the Second Continental Congress, Captain Isaac Biddlecomb & his much-battered ship & crew become part of the fledgling United States Navy. With a paranoid first officer & a crew of convicts, Biddlecomb, plays his part in the first U. S. naval action, fighting both a ship's company torn apart by dissent, & a powerful enemy at sea. Rich with wonderful historical detail, The Continental Risque includes a chart, map, & a glossary of seafaring terms.
