Description
Samuel Blyth was the youthful commander of His Britannic Majesty's brig Boxer, and William Burrows, younger still, commanded the USS Enterprise. Both men valued honor over life and death, and on a September day in 1813 off Pemaquid Point, Maine, their commitment would be put to the ultimate test. Their battle would be the only major sea engagement of the War of 1812 witnessed by people on land, and, though it lasted less than an hour, it was a brutal contest whose outcome was uncertain. In a "wonderful read [that] brings the War of 1812 to life" (Ken Burns), David Hanna vividly evokes a lost era—a time when sailing vessels exchanged broadsides and naval officers harnessed the wind to meet their foes.
