She manages to elude enemy warships long enough to transform her crew-from the crusty boatswain OToole to the teenage midshipman Billy Weatherby-into an effective fighting force.A story of the fury of the sea and the waste of war, of brave but fallible men and boys who find themselves in dire straits, of history and the building of character, Independent Action is fast-paced, old-fashioned, high seas adventure at its very best.
