When Drakes Fireships sailed against the Armada in the Calais Roads, it was the flawed courage of one man that imperilled his Admiral's master stroke.
That coward was Matthew Lawe, Drakes own Coxswain. His cowardice brought upon him a curse - that he sail the sea for the rest of time to purge his guilt of one fatal day.....
Through all the centuries of wind and wave and warfare, to the Arctic with the doomed Hudson expedition and to the sunbleached Main with Morgan the pirate... as fisherman on the Grand Banks and to clerk to Pepys at the Admiralty.... With Cook to the bloodstained Hawaii beach and with Nelson to his last great seafight off Cape Trafalgar.......
