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.
