Naval War – on the Atlantic Ocean

Sir John Borlase WARREN’s biography provides a context for the war on the Atlantic:

“Warren’s major North American service came during the War of 1812. As admiral of the blue he was appointed on 3 Aug. 1812 to the Halifax, Leeward Islands, and Jamaica stations, the Admiralty having unified the three commands to allow him to direct the overall naval strategy of the war.”

If you wish to know more about fighting on the ocean, we invite you to explore the list of biographies.
