Summary
On a September day in 1813, as the Age of Fighting Sail was coming to an end, two maritime warriors faced each other in the waters off Pemaquid Point, Maine. Samuel Blyth was the youthful commander of His Britannic Majesty's brig Boxer, and William Burrows, younger still, commanded the USS Enterprise. Both men valued honor over life and death, and on this day their commitment would be put to the ultimate test. The battle lasted less than an hour, and its outcome was uncertain, but when the cannon smoke cleared, the U.S. Navy's position in the war had changed. Historian David Hanna brings to life a lost era--a time when sailing vessels exchanged broadsides and naval officers considered it the highest honor to harness the wind to meet their foes.--From publisher description
