The Matty Graves Novels
The Matty Graves novels are sea adventures set in Age of Fighting Sail which chronicle the life of a young officer during the early years of the U.S. Navy. The action takes place in the Caribbean during the Quasi War—an undeclared naval conflict with France that hotted up in 1798 and petered out in 1801. There were a couple of significant frigate duels, but most of the action involved snatching up each other's merchantmen and suppressing privateers—which isn't to say it was dull. When you send out a bunch of young men with guns and swords and tell them to have at it, there's bound to be blood for breakfast some days.
