Publisher's Description

Theodore Roosevelt’s landmark work of military history: The definitive account of the War of 1812.
 
First published in 1882, The Naval War of 1812 established Theodore Roosevelt’s reputation as a noteworthy historian and scholar at just twenty-three years old. Four years later, the US Navy ordered copies of the book to be kept on every ship.
 
With exhaustive research into all levels of the conflict, Roosevelt presented an illuminating account of the political grievances between the United States and Britain, as well as the virtues and weaknesses of ship commanders on both sides. He demonstrated an impressive understanding of naval technology, detailing weaponry and ship designs and their effects on the outcome of each battle.
 
Refuting previous accounts of the war, Roosevelt bluntly criticized America’s military weaknesses in the face of the British fleet. Though The Naval War of 1812 initially stirred controversy in political circles, Roosevelt’s persuasive analysis inspired a movement to strengthen our national defense.
 
This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
