Overview

CS Forester’s distinguished account of the Anglo-American naval war of 1812. Age of Fighting Sail (1956) is a shrewd and skillful telling of a complex war that made it possible for a new republic to diminish the cock and swagger of a nation boasting one hundred years of sea triumphs. Britain invulnerable? Not so. Brilliant captains, determined crews, mighty ships, and errors in communication caused by distance and a turbulent world, made it possible for the new republic to alter the course of history. There is so much more to this war than our history books disclose. Tremendous in scope and detail, Age of Fighting Sail is a great non-fiction work by novelist and master story teller, C.S. Forester. A must read for lovers of history and wooden sailing ships.
