Navalcombat churned the waters of the Great Lakes while privateers and governme nt vessels engaged in a guerre de course in the Bay of Fundy and the Gulf of Maine. In Battle for the Bay, Joshua M. Smith tells the complete story ofthe warships that defended the eastern waters of British North America.
