Several important changes in the nature of naval warfare during the American Revolution occurred in the spring of 1778, including the internationalization of the naval war, an increase in the number and effectiveness of Loyalist privateers in American waters, and the questioning of the reputation of the Continental Navy and its officers by fellow Americans. Dr. Conrad provides a new and exciting perspective to anyone interested in the Revolutionary War or in America’s naval heritage.
