"Roy and Lesley Adkins bring this naval war to life, writing about its heroes, ship maneuvers and shipboard life with equal relish. They paint a picture of the large fleet actions of the war, such as the battles of the Nile and Copenhagen; duels between pairs of ships, such as the HMS Shannon and USS Chesapeake; and combined naval and army operations like the disastrous Walcheren expedition. They provide a ringside seat to the earliest attacks with torpedoes and rockets and a look at our own country in a rendering of the War of 1812, fought in our nation's infancy."--BOOK JACKET.
