Overview

John Paul Jones: Fighter for Freedom and Glory by Lincoln Lorenz

This is the true life story of the Scottish gardener’s son, John Paul, who became America’s greatest naval hero, John Paul Jones. British midshipman, African slaver, traveling actor, merchant captain, accused of murder and suspected of freebooting—this was John Paul. Captain in Washington’s Continental Navy, raider of the British coasts and victor in one of history’s most desperate naval battles, lion of the French court and beloved by beautiful women, Russian admiral under Catherine the Great, and dead at 45, neglected by his adopted United States, his very grave lost for a hundred years—that was John Paul Jones.
