BROKE OF THE SHANNON AND THE WAR OF 1812
A tale of political and military blunders, courage and cowardice in battle, a bloody ship to ship fight and technical innovation in the hitherto crude methods of naval gunnery. The author also tells the human story of Broke's determination to achieve victory so he could return to his wife and children after seven lonely years at sea. 16 pages of illustrations, some color.
