Captain Correa – The Guardian of Arecibo
It’s 1702. Dreaming of glory, a Spanish officer prays England will attack. When the attack comes, he won’t be ready.
Far from the European centers of power, the Spanish port of Arecibo, in the Caribbean Sea, becomes a target of the powerful English fleet. The defense of the port falls to Lieutenant Antonio de los Reyes Correa. The lieutenant is a proud and ambitious officer and a loving husband and father, but his men are inexperienced, and they are armed only with pikes and machetes. The battle-hardened English troops bring swords and firearms. They also have a man inside Correa’s camp.
The defenders are outnumbered and outgunned.
When the reinforcements he needs fail to arrive, Correa realizes the English may massacre the whole town, including his parents, his wife and his child. Only a miracle can save them now, and time is running out.
