    At the outbreak of the War of 1812, America's prospects looked dismal. It was clear that the primary battlefield would be the open ocean but America's war fleet, only 20 ships strong, faced a practiced British navy of more than a thousand men-of-war. Still, through a combination of nautical deftness and sheer bravado, the American navy managed to take the fight to the British and turn the tide of the war.

    K. Winters says: "Fantastic, if complicated, account of the war"
    "Not great for audio."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Would not recommend for listening. Great for reading for history buff.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not for one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Great historical account. Wonderfully researched.. Learned great things about the war I had never known before. Was not very exciting. Does not lend itself to narration.
