Meet Alain de Noux, hero of the Barbary Wars and the War of 1812, decorated US Navy Captain, witness of Trafalgar, innovative ship designer and builder, privateer and seducer of women—a highly versatile young man. Alain had to pad his age by three years to get into the Navy, and what he accomplishes before attaining his true age of twenty-five, defies belief in naval circles to the extent that the Royal Navy claimed their ships were lost in storms rather than admit that one man could inflict such damage. USS Relentless has some of the best sea battle scenes you will ever read, and plenty of them. A bevy of occasionally wanton females in various states of undress and numerous sojourns in exotic locales keeps the tale juicy. O’Neil de Noux, who is not really a descendant of Alain, shows an expert familiarity with all things nautical in the early nineteenth century. He puts the reader on that ship and takes him along for the cruise. This is a great story as well as a history lesson.
