Publish Date: 2001
Edition: Second Edition
Description: The fact that more Americans died in British captivity than in combat during the Revolutionary War will come as a shock to many because the treatment of prisoners has received little attention until now. Most of the twenty thousand American seamen taken captive were held on prison ships in New York harbor and in naval prisons in England. Their dramatic story unfolds through the experiences of William Russell, a sailor who kept a secret journal during his four years of British captivity. 240 pages.
