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.
