The Greater The Honour, William White
This is a rollicking sea story of the American naval officers who proudly called themselves "Preble's Boys." They took their ships to a distant solution to defend the new Republic. They cowed the Tripolitans and impressed the British. Finally Stephen Decatur and the rest of Preble's Boys get their due.
Their adventures and courageous acts challenge Jack Aubrey and Horatio Hornblower and they are all the more impressive because their story is true.
