Major Operations of the Navies in the War of American Independence
A.T. Mahan (au)
While George Washington & the Continental Army have attained near-legendary status during the Revolutionary War, the naval aspect of the war has often been overlooked, despite its significance in influencing the eventual outcome. Control of the seas was vital for all sides -- Amer., British, French, Spanish & Dutch. This vol. examines how naval battles were fought around the world between Britain & her opponents, from the struggle for control of Lake Champlain in 1775 to the relief of Gibraltar in 1782. It illustrates how the nature of the war at sea evolved throughout the course of the conflict, beginning with the Royal Navy supporting the British troops ashore & escalating into a full-scale naval war on several fronts. Reprint of the 1913 ed. Illus.
