"Gwyn's brilliant evocation of people and events, and the scholarship he brings to bear on the subject, makes Frigates and Foremasts a uniquely authoritative history. Wonderfully readable, it will attract both the serious naval historian and the general reader interested in the "why and what" of naval history on North America's eastern seaboard."--Jacket."
