An epic story of one man s devotion to the American causeIn October 1776, four years before Benedict Arnold s treasonous attempt to hand control of the Hudson River to the British, his patch-work fleet on Lake Champlain was all that stood between British forces and a swift end to the American rebellion.Benedict Arnold s Navy is the dramatic chronicle of that desperate battle and of the extraordinary events that occurred on the American Revolution s critical northern front. Written with captivating narrative vitality, this landmark book shows how Benedict Arnold s fearless leadership against staggering odds in a northern wilderness secured for America the independence that he would later try to betray.Praise for James L. Nelson:"James Nelson is a master both of his period and of the English language."--Patrick O'Brian, author of Master and Commander"James L. Nelson tells this story with clarity and literary skill and with such ease and order that the reader feels he is attending a dissertation on history given by a consummate lecturer."--Ron Berthel, Associated Press, on Reign of Iron: The Story of the First Battling Ironclads, winner of the American Library Association s 2004 Award for Best Military History"It is, by far, the best Civil War novel I ve read; reeking of battle, duty, heroism and tragedy. It s a triumph of imagination and good, taut writing . . . "--Bernard Cornwell on Glory in the Name, winner of the W. Y. Boyd Literary Award
