Life Before the Mast, Lewis, Jon E.
1 Lewis, Jon E. Life Before the Mast
New York Carroll and Graf Publishers, Inc. 2001 0786708115 / 9780786708116 Paper Back Good - Tiny tear in cover as seen in photo otherwise a tight book with clean pages 
Here are 22 eyewitness accounts of the battles, of hardships and the excitement of naval service during the French Revolutionary War (1793-1802), the Napoleonic War (1803 - 15) and the War of 1812 - an age when combat at sea was won, not by the impersonal might of technology, but by skill, endurance, and sheer courage, and when Britain's command of the sea was thought by many to be unshakable. Here is the reality behind the popular novels of sea fiction, gathered from memoirs, diaries and personal letters. exhilarating accounts of decisive naval actions, gunpowder and smoke, pirate and shipwreck, are complemented by revealing glimpses of daily life aboard man o'war, with its weevils and whippi9ngs, storms and salt port. Fascinating and humorous, often poignant, The Mammoth Book of Life Before the Mast relates the realities of naval warfare through the words of those who put their lives on the line - the officers and men of the English, French and American navies.
