American Light and Medium Frigates 1794-1836 Reviews


"The full history and design of these interesting ships is covered in this volume. It is superbly illustrated by period works as well as by the artists chosen by Osprey for this title. It is an excellent book on a most interesting subject and one that I am positive you will find to be of interest. One that will be pulled from the shelves time after time and one I can highly recommend to you." --Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (September 2008)
