December 29, 1812 - The date of one of the most dramatic sea battles in naval history. HMS Java and the USS Constitution (the famous Old Ironsides) face off in the War of 1812s most spectacular blue-water frigate action. Their separate stories begin in August 1812one in England and the other in New England. Then, the tension and suspense rise, week-by-week, as the ships cruise the Atlantic, slowly and inevitably coming together for the final life-and-death climax. The Perfect Wreck is not only the first full-length book ever written about the battle between the USS Constitution and HMS Java, it is a gem of Creative Nonfiction. It has the exhaustive research of a scholarly history book; but it is beautifully presented in the form of a novel. A highly recommended must-read for every naval enthusiastindeed, for every American! - Stephen Coonts - NY Times best-selling author.
