Maps. 8vo, illustrated purple card covers. "In early 1812, as the British and the Americans were on the brink of war in North America, Fort St. Joseph was not thought to be of much importance to the British cause. It was disregarded as a useless, poorly located post. But when war was declared, the garrison at Fort St. Joseph pulled off a miracle : it captured the American Fort Mackinac, and for the remainder of the War of 1812 the British never relinquished control of the Upper Great Lakes. Built in the aftermath of the American Revolution, Fort St. Joseph played an importantrole in the defence of Canada. And yet, when the war ended, the fort was a bandoned, and almost forgotten" -- from rear cover. Contents: Prologue: TheUpper Great Lakes context--St. Joseph Island before construction of the fo rt ; Why British authorities built Fort St. Joseph ; Construction of Fort St. Joseph ; International relations, 1794-1812 ; Life at Fort St. Joseph ; The glorious moment--the clandestine attack on Fort Mackinac ; Aftermath ofthe War of 1812 ; Breathing new life into an ancient corpse--Glyn Smith an d the campaign to revive Fort St. Joseph.

Nor canone deny that the triumph of Judaism through the victories of the Maccabee s was part of the great Oriental reaction against Hellenism, and that it preserved the Old Testament and thus formed the prelude to Christianity." - from the preface.

Viking, New York, 2007, ISBN:9780670038660 
ADKINS, Roy, and Lesley ADKINS. The War for All the Oceans : From Nelson atthe Nile to Napoleon at Waterloo. (New York) : Viking, (2007). First Print ing. Pp [i]-xxvi,[1]-534,+ 16 pp plates. Maps. Index. 8vo, blue paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. "From its very first page, The War for All the Oceans is an adventure story—a superb account of the naval war thatlasted from Napoleon's seizure of power in 1798 to the War of 1811 with th e United States. Most naval histories stop at Nelson's death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.. Yet the Royal Navy took on almost every other nationthat had a rival fleet: the French, Spanish, Dutch, Danes, Russians, Turks and Ameri­cans. Shipping routes all over the world were guarded to ensure that trade with Britain was not interrupted, and, as Napoleon lost his empire, Britain formed solid, imperial foundations—all because the British navygained control of the oceans. Roy and Lesley Adkins bring this naval war t o life, writing about its heroes, ship maneuvers and shipboard life with equal relish. They paint a brilliant picture of the large fleet actions of the war, such as the battles of the Nile and Copenhagen; duels between pairs of ships, such as the HMS Shannon and USS Chesapeake; and combined naval and army operations like the disas­trous Walcheren expedition. They provide aringside seat to the earliest attacks with torpedoes and rock­ets and a fr esh look at our own country in a brilliant rendering of the War of 1811, fought in our nation's infancy. As in Nelson's Trafalgar, the Adkinses delight in the details, drawing vivid portraits of the sailors as well as the press-gangs, prostitutes and spies who populated this epic war." - from the dj. Underlining in pen on page 126, else very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
