About this title


This is the original edition of "All The Proud Ships."  Now out of print, it has been replaced by the second edition, which is available in both paperback and Kindle versions.

From the Author:

This is the story of the Continental Navy warship "Eagle" and of the men who command her, Lieutenant Ethan Hale and Captain Patrick Tremayne.  Although the story is fictional, the ship "Eagle" is closely modeled on two real Continental Navy ships, the "Bon Homme Richard," a former French merchant ship captained by the famous John Paul Jones, and the frigate "Warren."  As the author notes:  "[T]he Continental Navy Ship Eagle that is featured in this story is closely patterned after the real-life ship Bon Homme Richard, the vessel from whose deck Captain John Paul Jones issued his immortal words "I have not yet begun to fight."  Like Bon Homme RichardEagle is a former merchant ship, an old "East Indiaman" refitted as a naval warship, and like Bon Homme Richard, Eagle is armed with a "mixed bag" of cannon, 9-pounders, 12-pounders, and 18-pounders. ... Another Continental ship upon whose history I have drawn in creating Eagle was Warren, one of the 13 frigates authorized by Congress in 1775.  Built in Rhode Island and launched in 1776, Warren was armed with thirty-four cannon, these also being 9-, 12-, and 18-pounders, the same calibers that I have attributed to Eagle."  Thus armed, "Eagle" is sailed "into harm's way" by Hale and Tremayne in pursuit of a British convoy carrying vital reinforcements to the British garrisons in America in the year 1776.
