Publisher's Description

In book two of the American Revolutionary War Adventures historical fiction series, readers ages 8-12 can experience the Revolutionary War firsthand in this novel based on actual events. Twins John and Ambrose Clark find themselves aiding the patriots once again as they help work on a top-secret submarine that could end the war … and also look for a way to rescue their captured older brother.

In addition to bringing alive America’s war for independence, including information on the first submarine built in America, Submarines, Secrets, and a Daring Rescue:

  • Teaches kids about the Revolutionary War from a kid’s perspective
  • Is packed with historical information that is entertaining and educational
  • Contains discussion questions, backgrounds on the real-life historical persons featured in the book, historical letters, and a glossary of key terms
  • Can be used alongside school curriculum and as a homeschool resource

After working as spies to aid the Colonies and delivering a message to General George Washington himself, twins Ambrose and John Clark find themselves volunteering for another mission to help the newly forming United States. This time, 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. But the biggest challenge may be finding a way to free their imprisoned older brother.

Editorial 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; readers hearing of the submarine for the first time will be intrigued. Discussion questions, a list of the historical characters who appear in the series, a glossary, and reproductions of historical letters support the story and make this a novel that could easily be incorporated into a classroom or homeschool lesson. --- Kara Dean -- Booklist
