In the spring of 1797 Richard Bolitho brings the 100-gun Euryalus home to Falmouth to be flagship of the hastily formed squadron which has been chosen to make the first British re-entry to the Mediterranean for nearly a year. As flag captain, Bolitho is made to contend with the unyielding attitudes of his new admiral, as well as the devious requirements of the squadron's civilian advisor. England is still stunned by the naval mutiny at Spithead, in which Bolitho's admiral was personally involved, and as the squadron sets sail the air is already alive with rumour of an even greater uprising in the ships at the Nore. Only when the squadron is drawn to a bloody embrace with the enemy does the admiral see the strength in Bolitho's trust and care for his men - but by then it is almost too late for any of them.

Lieutenant Halfhyde, Captain Watkiss, and Admiral Daintree are under orders to round Cape Horn on a voyage from Chile to Britain to deliver traitor Sir Russell Savory to his fate. With them and the crew, on the flagship "Halcyon," are a motley group of passengers. Their old enemy, Vice-Admiral von Merkatz is on their trail in hopes of freeing Savory.Watkiss constantly countermands the aged Admiral's orders and, despite the efforts of Halfhyde to thwart Watkiss's reckless behavior, pursues his dangerous policy of confrontation with the Kaiser's navy.Watkiss's overt aggression is deflected by orders to return to South America. A revolutionary coup jeopardizes the safety of the British Ambassador to Uruguay. Rightly supposing that the British attention will be focussed on the ambassador rather than their captive traitor, von Merkatz steams confidently up the River Plate and, with extravagant promises, quickly makes allies of the new Uruguayan regime. Watkiss's interference on the "Halcyon's" bridge has caused three of the five ships in Admiral Daintree's squadron to collide while anchoring. Thus the British are ill-prepared to contest a challenge from von Merkatz.Like all the Halfhyde Adventures, this volume is leavened with humor.

By whatever name it is called—the Stars and Stripes, Old Glory, the Star-Spangled Banner—the American flag is the ultimate symbol of American freedom. But why stars, why stripes? What is the significance of the elements of the flag? The American flag went through several incarnations before the design we recognize today was established. From a banner based on a British flag and a colonial rattlesnake flag that read, "Don't Tread on Me" to the enormous 15-star flag that flew over Fort McHenry in 1814, inspiring Francis Scott Key to write the national anthem, this symbol of America has inspired music and joy in the hearts of people around the world. It is a beacon to those who long for liberty, as well as a representation of the unity of our great nation.
