Richard Delancey, inadvertently embroiled in Liverpool labor riots, sidesteps punishment by "volunteering" for the Navy. Ranked as a midshipman, he is no sooner aboard than his ship sails for the port of New York. But when the events of the American Revolution and the ongoing hostilities between England and France send him back across the sea, Delancey finds himself instrumental in defending the Isle of Jersey and, later, the Rock of Gibraltar.

I don't think Delancey stands out from the rest of the Age of Sail characters I have previously met but there are some very interesting nuggets if information that I haven't run into in other similar novels. Will try another of the books to see if the character develops further
