Main description

An epic story of one man's devotion to the American cause

In October 1776, four years before Benedict Arnold's treasonous attempt to hand control of the Hudson River to the British, his patch-work fleet on Lake Champlain was all that stood between British forces and a swift end to the American rebellion.

Benedict Arnold's Navy is the dramatic chronicle of that desperate battle and of the extraordinary events that occurred on the American Revolution's critical northern front. Written with captivating narrative vitality, this landmark book shows how Benedict Arnold's fearless leadership against staggering odds in a northern wilderness secured for America the independence that he would later try to betray.

Praise for James L. Nelson:

"James Nelson is a master both of his period and of the English language."
--Patrick O'Brian, author of Master and Commander

"James L. Nelson tells this story with clarity and literary skill and with such ease and order that the reader feels he is attending a dissertation on history given by a consummate lecturer."
--Ron Berthel, Associated Press, on Reign of Iron: The Story of the First Battling Ironclads, winner of the American Library Association's 2004 Award for Best Military History

"It is, by far, the best Civil War novel I've read; reeking of battle, duty, heroism and tragedy. It's a triumph of imagination and good, taut writing . . . "
--Bernard Cornwell on Glory in the Name, winner of the W. Y. Boyd Literary Award
