"A lively journal account by a crew member of the USS Constitution 's most successful war cruise towards the end of the War of 1812, during which she slipped past the Royal Navy's blockade of Boston and captured the HMS Cyane and HMS Levant in the eastern Atlantic. Martin, a historian and former commanding officer of "Old Ironsides," provides editorial commentary of historical events and clarifies Humphrey's terminology and archaic language throughout." - Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.
