Yearning for the high seas, Alan Lewrie plods through his oppressive life as a gentleman farmer and family man.

The year is 1793 and after four years spent ashore, Lewrie is gratified when revolutionary France threatens war and the Royal Navy beckons.

All does not go smoothly, as he soon finds himself aboard the HMS Cockerel dealing with a difficult captain and disgruntled crew.

Once in the Mediterranean, he throws caution to the wind and becomes involved with the bewitching Lady Emma Hamilton.

The war escalates and he finds himself at the Battle of Toulon where he meets a dashing young Napoleon Bonaparte.

Outnumbered three to one, Lewrie takes on the French in a desperate bid to help the Royalists escape.
