Short Synopsis
Praised for its scholarship, assurance, and originality, this classic naval history by Theodore Roosevelt offers stirring and comprehensive accounts of the war's dramatic naval battles and of the American and English commanders who fought on the vast North American lakes and on the ocean for control of the continent.

Full Synopsis
Published when Theodore Roosevelt was only twenty-three years old, The Naval War of 1812 was immediately hailed as a literary and scholarly triumph, and it is still considered the definitive book on the subject. It caused considerable controversy for its bold refutation of earlier accounts of the war, but its brilliant analysis and balanced tone left critics floundering, changed the course of U.S. military history by renewing interest in our obsolete forces, and set the young author and political hopeful on a path to greatness. Roosevelt's inimitable style and robust narrative make The Naval War of 1812 enthralling, illuminating, and utterly essential to every armchair historian.

"A classic of naval history." ---Edmund Morris

"An excellent book in every respect, and shows in so young an author the best promises for a good historian." ---The New York Times
