Plot:
Michiel de Ruyter is one of the largest and passionate innovators in combat engineering and therefore he became a naval hero in Holland.

When the young republic of The Netherlands is attacked by England, France and Germany and the country itself is on the brink of civil war, only one man can lead the county's strongest weapon, the Dutch fleet: Michiel de Ruyter.

But in the eyes of those in power, his successes make him too popular and Michiel is sent on a deadly mission…

Notes:
Michiel Adriaenszoon de Ruyter (1607-1676) is one of the most famous names in Dutch naval history and was involved in all three Anglo-Dutch wars.

He saved the newly founded Republic, which was torn apart by internal strife between republicans and royalists, from an imminent attack by the British fleet on their home ground, on the Thames, during the second Anglo-Dutch War.
