A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Discover the epic naval story of the war that threatened to undo our nation in 1812. Riveting firsthand accounts enliven this official sea-level view of the conflict that proved American naval prowess a force to be reckoned with. Explore historic documents, letters, ephemera, and artifacts, including fascinating finds from the Navy's most recent underwater excavation of the war's lost ships. Featuring a colorful, diverse cast of characters--from sailors, spies, and ship's surgeons to commodores, Navy wives, and privateersmen--and incorporating hundreds of photographs, period illustrations, and contemporary and original maps, The War of 1812 and the Rise of the U.S. Navy is a sweeping panorama of a defining moment in U.S. history and a must-read for maritime aficionados and general history buffs alike.

From the Inside Flap:

This stirring saga of conflict, power, and the courage and character of both people and nations comes to life in The War of 1812 and the Rise of the U.S. Navy with gripping firsthand accounts drawn from letters, dispatches, reports, diaries, journals, and memoirs penned by the colorful cast of sea captains, ship's surgeons, spies, privateers, powder boys, naval wives, and everyday sailors who made the conflict so memorable. Their experiences shed light on the strife of warfare as well as on life in America not so long after our own Revolution.
