Published when Theodore Roosevelt was only twenty-three years old, The Naval War of 1812 was immediately hailed as a literary and scholarly triumph, and it is still considered the definitive book on the subject. It caused considerable controversy for its bold refutation of earlier accounts of the war, but its brilliant analysis and balanced tone left critics floundering, changed the course of U.S. military history by renewing interest in our obsolete forces, and set the young author and political hopeful on a path to greatness. Roosevelt's inimitable style and robust narrative make The Naval War of 1812 enthralling, illuminating, and utterly essential to every armchair historian.

Author Bio: Theodore Roosevelt

Author Bio: Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919) was the twenty-sixth president of the United States. He is noted for his exuberant personality, range of interests and achievements, leadership of the Progressive movement, and “cowboy” image. He was a leader of the Republican Party and founder of the short-lived Progressive Party of 1912. Before becoming president, he held offices at the municipal, state, and federal level of government. Roosevelt’s achievements as a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier are as much a part of his fame as any office he held as a politician.
