From the "first salute" given to the US on 16th November, 1776 when a ship flying the ensign of the Continental Congress (as the rebellious colonies called themselves) arrived at St Eustatius in the West Indies, to the last campaign of the War of Independence five years later. The author Moves away from the familiar land battles of the Revolution, focussing largely on the machinations of the French and Dutch, the conflicts of English princes and politicians, and the victories and disasters at sea.
