"If our first struggle was that of our infancy, this last was that of our youth; and the issue of both, wisely improved, may long postpone if not forever prevent a necessity for exerting the strength of our manhood.".......James Madison


"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.

First Copy of 1812

I've received the first copy of 1812: The Navy's War. It looks great. The Basic Books staff did a wonderful job putting the book together. So exciting to see it in print. You will be able to view it in the bookstores on October 4. Be sure to check the events page (link over on the righthand sidebar) to see when I'll be talking at a bookstore or event near you. Would love to say hello and have a chat.
