Synopsis

Submarines, Secrets and a Daring Rescue by Robert J. Skead, Robert A. Skead

In this second book in the American Revolutionary War Adventure series, Submarines, Secrets, and a Daring Rescue, twins Ambrose and John Clark find themselves volunteering for another mission to help the newly forming United States. Inspired by their success in delivering a secret message to General George Washington himself, the boys step up to help transport much-needed gunpowder to the patriots and end up in an even more dangerous situation, trying to man one of the first submarines and then, later, attempting a prison break to rescue one of their older brothers. Follow these brave young patriots as they follow in their father's footsteps and rely on each other, their considerable courage, and God's providence for guidance and strength.

Reviews

Ambrose and John Clark are back in their second Revolutionary War adventure. Fresh from delivering a top-secret message to George Washington in Patriots, Redcoats, and Spies (2015), the 14-year-old twins have now been recruited to man the American Turtle, the world's first submersible used in combat, in order to attach explosives to the hull of a British ship. Things are complicated by the fact that Loyalist spies are reporting their every move, and their older brother, Berty, is captured and scheduled to be hanged as a traitor. The story moves at a brisk pace with plenty of musketry and bloodshed, and the technical information about the Turtle's creation is interesting rather than dull
