Beginning with The Friendly Sea, the Duty and Destiny series is the story of Captain Frederick Harris of His Majesty’s navy. The (currently) eleven book saga follows Harris’ career from his days as a newly made lieutenant in the Caribbean to his days as baronet and commodore at the beginning of the Peninsular Campaign in Spain.
