    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"
    "Excellent history of the War of 1812."

    What didn’t you like about Marc Vietor’s performance?

    Needs to review pronounciations. Mackinac Island is prounounced "Mackinaw."


    Any additional comments?

    Good history of a little studied War.
