The Continental Navy and America's Revolution at Sea
Five ships against hundreds—the American Navy vs the greatest naval force the world had ever seen.
Give Me a Fast Ship is an exhaustively researched and fluently rendered account of the first incarnation of the American navy. In telling this fascinating and sprawling tale, Tim McGrath never loses sight of the human dimension of his subject...McGrath has mined archival sources that have been largely neglected in previous histories. The result is a thoroughly readable history of an integral aspect of the campaign for American independence. - Ian W. Toll, author of Six Frigates
