Recently promoted to Rear Admiral, Rupert Buck’s flag flies aloft HMS Trident as his squadron is formed. Captain Sir Gabriel Anthony, England’s latest hero, has been chosen as flag captain.

A sudden crisis develops and Gabe suddenly finds himself thrust into command of the squadron. Follow the ships and men under Rear Admiral Buck’s flag as they raid a neutral fort, battle the elements and face a powerful enemy with cannons blazing.
