During the Napoleonic Wars, Lucky Jack Aubrey captains the crew of the H.M.S. Surprise. When the ship is suddenly attacked by a superior enemy, it is badly damaged and much of his crew is injured. In a bold and dangerous move, Aubrey decides to set sail in a high stakes chase across two oceans to intercept and capture their foe. It's a mission that can decide the fate of a nation--or destroy Lucky Jack and his crew.
