Privateering in the American Revolution

The heroic story of the foundling of the U.S. Navy during the Revolution has been told before, but missing from most maritime histories of America's first war is the ragtag fleet of private vessels that tormented the formidable British navy. In Rebels at Sea, best-selling historian Eric Jay Dolin corrects that significant omission, contending that privateers, though often seen as profiteers at best and pirates at worst, were in fact critical to the Revolution's outcome. "Richly detailed, impressively documented, and beautifully written" (George Daughan), Rebels at Sea presents a compelling narrative history of these forgotten heroes of the American Revolution.
