Command of a frigate was the most desirable post for a dashing captain in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, for it offered both independence and a chance for glory. Although frigates were usually deployed in squadrons or attached to fleets, it was victories in single-ship duels that thrilled the public and brought captains fame. During nearly two decades of naval warfare, the frigates of the Royal Navy and the Marine nationale fought 45 such actions.

This book discusses the evolving technology of these fast, powerful warships, and examines four different frigate duels, each illustrating an important aspect of frigate warfare. Illustrated with battlescenes and explanatory artwork, it looks the reality behind the Napoleonic frigate duel - perhaps the most romanticized battles in naval history.
