His fishing vessel has foundered and he is the sole survivor. The Hortense is part of Republican Admiral Jan Van Stabel’s great fleet of more than 100 ships bringing corn to France. Life on The Hortense is like France under the Terror—chaotic, ungovernable, and obsessed with savage, radical political theories. Separated from the French fleet in the Western Approaches she is intercepted by two British frigates and battle is joined.
