Having appeared in two hardcover editions, Miller's single-volume account is published in paper to mark the 225th anniversary of the Continental Navy. He had an advantage over earlier naval historians because the Navy was collecting scattered primary documents into a central archive at the time of the US bicentennial. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Sea Of Glory: A Naval History Of The American Revolution is a superbly researched, written and presented single volume history of the development and role of American's first navy during the war for independence against Britain — at the time the strongest naval power in the world. Nathan Miller provides the reader with a lively, accurate, "reader friendly", account of the Continental Navy's operations, the various state navies, as well as the British and French fleets. Of special interest and value are Miller's attentions to the lives of ordinary seamen, privateering, and how wooden ships were built, crewed, and sailed. Sea Of Glory is an invaluable, highly recommended addition to any personal, academic, or public library naval history or American Revolution history collection.
