The Ragtag Fleet that Lost the Battle of Lake Champlain But Won the American Revolution.
Covering one of history's great "tipping point" battles, Benedict Arnold's Navy recounts the courageous and exemplary campaign of Arnold and his cobbled-together fleet of "ships" against a much superior British force in the Battle of Valcour Island (Lake Champlain) in October 1776.This landmark book shows how Arnold's fearless leadership against staggering odds in a northern wilderness secured for America the independence that he would later try to betray.
