The French Admiral

(1990)
(The second book in the Alan Lewrie series)
A novel by

 
 
1781 Held by the British, the Chesapeake Bay port of Yorktown is under siege. Pounded by the American forces on land and the deadly warships of their French allies at sea, the once-proud city is aflame and near ruin. But on the horizon, the Royal Navy fleet, with heavily armed frigates, is poised to break through the French blockade. Aboard HMS Desperate, Midshipman Alan Lewrie sets his gunners to their lethal work firing broadsides of 24-pound shot at the enemy vessels.

Dewey Lambdin, a self-proclaimed 'Navy brat,' is the author of the Alan Lewrie Naval Adventures, which are set in the Royal Navy of Nelson's time. He has worked for a network affiliate TV station as a producer/director for twelve years, for an independent station as production manager and senior director/writer/ producer for three years, all in Memphis, and as a writer/producer with a Nashville advertising/production facility, or in freelance camera, lighting and writing. A member of the U.S. Naval Institute, a Friend of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, England; Cousteau Society; the former American Film Institute; and the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Lambdin spends his free time working and sailing on his beloved sloop, Wind Dancer.
