It s hard to imagine a better place for listening to this shrewdly abridged, excitingly read audio version of Toll s impressive history of the founding of the United States Navy than aboard some sort of seagoing vessel One of Patrick O Brian s warships would be perfect, but anything from a smaller sailboat to the Staten Island Ferry would be almost as auspicious Veteran actor Lang, his voice instantly recognizable from films and television, never lets that familiarity take over He trusts instead to Toll s virtuoso combination of details large and small everything from the uniquely horrible ways men died during sea battles to the greed of shipbuilders and their representatives in government to keep listeners intriguedchanging his voice in subtle ways when he brings to life the real words of American and British naval heroes from Lord Nelson to the officers who won the war of 1812 Lang is a lucid guide through the stormy seas of politics and commercial intrigue surrounding the birth of the U.S naval fleet, which would soon surprise the worldespecially the British navy, which thought of itself as invincible Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Not confined to sea battles, Toll s history of the U.S Navy s formative decades, from the mid 1790s to the War of 1812, rounds out affairs by anchoring the nascent navy to its financial supports Navies are not inexpensive, and the costs of building and maintaining ships appear lightly but persistently in Toll s narrative It centers on the first vessels purpose built for the

dramatizations of the naval engagements of the new navy, which produced a crop of national heroes such as Stephen Decatur The maritime strategy and the highly developed sense of officers honor, which influenced where particular battles occurred, emerge clearly in this fluent account Vibrant and comprehensive, Toll makes an impressive debut Gilbert Taylor Copyright American Library Association All
