ABOUT THIS BOOK
"In 1812: The Navy's War, prizewinning historian George C Daughan tells the thrilling story of how a handful of heroic captains and their stalwart crews overcame spectacular odds to lead the country to victory against the world's greatest imperial power. A stunning contribution to military and national history, "1812: The Navy's War" is the first complete account in more than a century of how the U.S. Navy rescued the fledgling nation and secured America's future.

Although publication is still 2 months away, Perseus has begun booking book tour events. I'm really looking forward to seeing many old and new friends. I'll be starting in New York City on October 3. The schedule will be updated as events are confirmed. Check the events page from time to time to see when I'll be in your neighborhood. http://www.georgedaughanevents.blogspot.com/
