||How did America with no Navy and no weapons defeat the
greatest naval power in the world? This book tells you how, and also
tells who the real heroes were in the Revolutionary War. George Washington
started his own navy with Marblehead fishermen -- most of whom George
didn't like at all -- and the first ship of the navy turned out to
be a dud - the crew mutinied, the commander was fired, and the ship
ended up on a sandbar.
