Alfred Thayer Mahan discusses all of the conflict's major sea battles, including those between England and France, America's new ally after the colonial troops' 1777 victory at Saratoga. Readers will come to appreciate the extent to which the American Revolution was part of a world conflict and will learn lesser-known details of naval activity in the West Indies and elsewhere. Richly enhanced by contemporary illustrations and relevant maps, this is an essential work for any student or armchair historian with an interest in naval history and the American Revolution.
