Praise For John Paul Jones: Sailor, Hero, Father of the American Navy…
Nathaniel Philbrick The New York Times Book Review A penetrating biography...an adventure story....Part George Patton, part Jesse James, Jones was, as it turns out, a perfect American hero.
The Washington Post Every sentence is written with grace and style....Thomas opens a window on the squalid, demeaning, and hazardous milieu of eighteenth-century mariners and provides unsurpassed descriptions of naval battles.
Chicago Sun-Times His stirring accounts of Jones's sea battles will delight those who loved Patrick O'Brian's novels about Capt. Jack Aubrey and C. S. Forester's tales of Horatio Hornblower.
