This story deals with one of the most memorable sieges in history - the siege of Gibraltar in 1779-83 by the united forces of France and Spain. With land forces, fleets, and floating batteries, the combined resources of two great nations, this grim fortress was vainly besieged and bombarded. The hero of the tail, an English lad resident in Gibraltar, takes a brave and worthy part in the long defense, and it is through his varied experiences that we learn with what bravery, resource, and tenacity the Rock was held for England.
