A non fiction book by

 
 
From back cover: In 1812 the few ships of the new United States Navy took on the might of the British Fleet. The battles they fought and the victories they won - the men who died and the heroes who appeared - have been vividly brought alive again in this book by the greatest of all naval writers. Here are stories of the fast merchantmen and the daring privateers, the swashbuckling captains and the courageous sailors who lived and died for freedom. THE AGE OF FIGHTING SAIL is as dramatic and exciting as any of the world-famous Hornblower novels.
