From the Publisher"...[a] richly textured model of historical revisionism, which confirms Hickey's status as a leading scholar of the early national period."
"In this quirky, encyclopedic debunking of the mythology of the war of 1812, Donald R. Hickey displays his peerless command of the field and, with his concise, highly opinionated writing style, unlocks many of the mysteries and details of what he insists was not a second war of independence. ... Don't Give Up the Ship! belongs on the shelf of everyone deeply interested in, or who writes about, the War of 1812." — Naval History, February 2007
"Donald R. Hickey's unique study Don't Give Up the Ship!: Myths of the War of 1812 addresses the myths, half truths, and realities of the forgotten last Anglo-American conflict. . . . The book provides a starting point for those seeking further information regarding the conflict and it should take its rightful place on the bookshelves of all War of 1812 buffs and scholars."—Journal of the Early Republic
