Rush To Destiny | [Larry Jay Martin]

Rush To Destiny

On the Atlantic, a young navy midshipman named Ned Beale wins friends in high places - including Commodore Robert F. Stockton and President James K. Polk - for his irrepressible, can-do attitude. In the Caribbean he confronts the horrors of the slave trade, and as ship's master on the flagship of the Pacific fleet, he sails into port off Alta California...and into the blood and dust of war.

Publisher's Summary

On the Atlantic, a young navy midshipman named Ned Beale wins friends in high places - including Commodore Robert F. Stockton and President James K. Polk - for his irrepressible, can-do attitude. In the Caribbean he confronts the horrors of the slave trade, and as ship's master on the flagship of the Pacific fleet, he sails into port off Alta California...and into the blood and dust of war.

Now, with Kit Carson and Captain John Charles Fremont, he'll lead his sailor volunteers against the festooned lances of the Mexican soldados, pouring his soul and sweat into this land of parched beauty to secure it for the States. For Ned Beale has a vision of a road that extends from sea to sea, and he'll crisscross this wild country, braving Indians, Californios, and the elements, to see it become reality.

    "At least get the history right"

    Not worth listening to. Too many glaring historical errors to list them all. The author has a Congressional Medal of Honor being awarded in 1812. The Medal was first awarded during the Civil war. He has a Midshipman being flogged. Middies were officers and were not flogged. Mastheading was the most common punishment for Midshipman although they could be caned. Midshipman took their meals in the Gunroon not the Wardroon. All these in the first chapter.
