More than 150 detailed drawings, maps, plans, and diagrams show minutely how the battles went, what the ships looked like with their complex rigging, how the weapons worked, and what the gear looked like, Step-by-step sketches follow the construction of a mighty warship from skeletal framework to the finished vessel. Ships An Seaman Of The American Revolution tells a story to cap all sea stories in this panorama of the ships, the guns, and the men who turned the tide for the Colonists.
