About the Author:

James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) was a famed nineteenth century American author known for his work in fiction particularly sea stories and historical novels and politics. He enrolled in Yale University, never earned a degree but later joined the United States Navy. Some of his most famous works include Last of the Mohicans, A Letter to my Countymen, and Ned Myers' or A Life before the Mast.

Review:

In outline, The Two Admirals...is as romantic as The Pilot or Red Rover...The details, however, are in large part solid and real, and events are so handled that they raise philosophical questions the more interesting because Cooper keeps personally aloof and neither asks nor answers them directly about the notion of legitimacy in government and the conventions of loyalty and obedience. James Grossman, James Fenimore Cooper (William Sloane Associates, The American Men of Letters Series, pp. 157-58)."
