Description
 
James Henderson (au). Light, swift, daring: frigates were the cruisers of Nelsonís navy, commanded by bold, young, courageous officers, ranging the oceans of the world alone or in packs, seeking his enemy -- & usually finding him. Although the swashbuckling spirit of these almost incredible sea adventures has been captured in the best naval fiction, the story of the frigates of 1793-1815 has never been told as a continuous narrative until now. Hendersonís vivid writing has the reader pacing the quarterdeck with the first lieutenant, or muzzle-loading on the smoky gundeck of a 44. His descriptions of frigate & naval technicalities make it easy for the reader to assess famous actions. Illustrations.
