Blue at the MizzenBook - 1999
The Surprise is nearly sunk in a shattering night collision on the first leg of her journey to South America, where Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin are to help Chile assert her independence from Spain. In the end, Jack's bold initiative to strike at the vastly superior Spanish fleet precipitates naval action that will determine both Chile's fate and his own.
