9780143142485: Under Enemy Colors

Born to an English father and a French mother, lieutenant Charles Saunders Hayden's career is damned by his ?mixed? heritage. Assigned to the HMS Themis, an aging frigate under the command of a captain reviled by his crew for both his brutality towards his men and his cowardice in battle, Hayden is torn between honor and duty, as the British navy engages the French in a centuries-old struggle for power.

Review:

Before them, Hayden could see the mutineers, armed and stripped to the waist, watching them with a mixture of outrage and dire apprehension. The second French frigate, La Rochelle, was quickly ranging up to a position where she might unload her entire broadside into the Themis, and the mutineers could not have been insensible to it. "Surrender your ship. We know you have less than half a crew. Haul down your colours or we will board." Mutineers on the quarterdeck began a fierce argument. One of the men--Jarvis--broke away from the group and came to the rail. "We are English mutineers," he called through cupped hands, though the distance between the ships could be measured in yards. "We have removed our officers and wish to take our ship into Brest harbour. We wish to join you. Do you understand? Join the revolution...." "Lay down your weapons and we will talk."
