Sinopsis:

The captain of the USS Constitution during the US bicentennial augments his 1980 history of the country's most famous sailing ship with the fruits of additional research just in time for the ship's own bicentennial in 1997. He confirms that the diagonal riders were in the ship from the first, provides details and diagrams of battles the ship has taken part in, and includes a glossary without pronunciation. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Review:

Considered a definitive account when first published in 1980, A Most Fortunate Ship is now available in a revised edition to commemorate the bicentennial anniversary of the USS Constitution, America's most famous naval vessel. The warship earned the nickname "Old Ironsides" because of its apparent invincibility fighting enemy ships such as the HMS Guerriere, the HMS Java, and ships sailed by the Barbary pirates. The prose is good, but the graphics are even better: beautiful illustrations dot these pages, as do rare photographs and helpful battle diagrams. Tyrone Martin's depiction of everyday life in the early 19th-century American navy is especially interesting.
