Captain Steven G. Rogers, fierce and determined leader of a crew of elite sailors, was commissioned by the Royal Navy to stamp out threats of piracy throughout the Atlantic.
No one had been assigned to the crew. Each sailor had been chosen and asked to join. For many, it was a mission they took because they had a loyalty to the captain, but Captain Rogers himself looked at his task as a vendetta against a sole man.
Pirate Captain Johann Schmidt had anchored his ship in the Brooklyn harbor some twenty years ago when a game of hide and seek led young Bucky Barnes, childhood best friend of Steve Rogers, to board the ship looking for a place to hide. Schmidt left port that evening and Barnes, along with two other boys, were never seen alive again. The bodies of the other boys washed ashore, but the body of Bucky was never recovered. Besides the vest Bucky had been wearing and a severed part of his arm, the boy was all but gone. Now in his mid-thirties, Steve Rogers had risen through the ranks of the navy with unrelenting resolve until he was given the commission he desired: going after the man who had stolen his best friend’s life and serving him the merciless justice he’d shown Bucky years before.
