The first year of the United States' second war with Great Britain has been a disheartening embarrassment for the young country with the Americans' advance into Canada via New York thoroughly repelled and entire swathes of the Northwest Territory now under the control of His Majesty's army. But with the British surge temporarily halted in Northwestern Ohio, crewman Joshua Nelson, who is serving on board the flagship of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, the USS Niagara, and the rest of the American fleet on Lake Erie have the dangerous yet crucial opportunity of wresting the lake from the British and with it the primary supply line to the entire Northwest Territory.
Waves and War brings all of the action of the Battle of Lake Erie, the most pivotal battle in the War of 1812, to life in a vivid adventure. This piece of historical fiction will appeal to readers of short stories and history alike.
