From the back cover:
"This is the account of machines of war pitted against each other and the combatants who operated them. Step onto the battlefield and immerse yourself into the experience of real historic combat."
"A duel between two 19th-century sailing frigates was one of the most brutal yet most gentlemanly clashes of arms in history. It was not unknown for two of these powerful ships to agree to fight alone, and captains occasionally even issues written challenges to one another to meet in single combat. But a hard-fought frigate battle was hugely destructive, and the price of honor was often paid in blood. The War of 1812 saw four of the most famous frigate duels in history, with a powerful but complacent Royal Navy pitted against the new, advantaged frigates of the tiny US Navy. From the American triumph of Constitution vs Guerriere to the British revenge of Shannon vs Chesapeake, this book provides a vivid analysis of the combatants, their ships, and the clashes that made them legendary."
