William Jones, asymmetric warfare, and the War of 1812

I have just posted a pdf (17 MB file) of my article that appeared in MHQ last year about America's war strategy in the naval War of 1812.

It's a brief introduction to the themes and some of the key personalities (especially Secretary of the Navy William Jones, a man truly ahead of his time) that feature in my soon-to-appear history of the war Perilous Fight . . .

You can read the Publishers Weekly review of the book here.
