KIRKUS REVIEW

Brief note of an excellent biography of Com. Barney, hero of Bladensburg, and of naval battles in the Revolution and the War of 1812. A glamorous character, grand adventure and a facet of our early history on which little is known -- and Footner has made the most of all these elements, while sacrificing nothing of the authentic historical significance of the material. Well documented -- indexed.
