The true tales of leadership and courage that set the standards for Navy sailors of all ages fill the pages of this exciting book. The twelve exploits that are recounted in these well-researched and easy-reading poetry forms explain why the term sailor carries such deep respect in the United States Navy. The first story begins with John Barry in 1776; the last with Stephen Decatur in 1816. All fought their battles under sail in wooden ships in the harsh environment of stormy seas. The boldness and valor of these patriots gives meaning to the word patriotism.
