Summary
America in 1775 was on the verge of revolution-or, more likely, disastrous defeat. After the bloodshed at Lexington and Concord, England's King George sent hundreds of ships westward to bottle up American harbors and prey on American shipping. Colonists had no force to defend their coastline and waterways until John Adams of Massachusetts proposed a bold solution: The Continental Congress should raise a navy. The idea was mad. The Royal Navy was the mightiest floating arsenal in history, with a seemingly endless supply of vessels. Meticulously researched and masterfully told, Give Me a Fast Ship is a rousing, epic tale of war on the high seas-and the definitive history of the American Navy during the Revolutionary War
