KIRKUS REVIEW

At nine a midshipman and at twelve a prize-master of the Barclay, David Farragut at an early age exhibited the characteristics that bolstered him through an exciting career and saw him the first Admiral of our navy. And there is credit where credit is due in this well constructed life history- written by an active Chicago teacher and lecturer. Youth, his first important job as a consular aide at Tunis, victimization by personal animosity that brought about a temporary set back, his brilliancy as a strategist among whose deeds was the Union victory at Mobile Bay- are all recounted with a flair that follows naturally in the wake of a real hero.
