I put this on my Christmas wish-list, which my wife totally ignored :cry:
Guess I'll have to take charge and place an order with Amazon (via the Subsim link, of course!)

Just as an aside, the British release has a completely different title:
Six Frigates: How Piracy, War and British Supremacy at Sea Gave Birth to the World's Most Powerful Navy

I read the review earlier and noted a big mistake:
The act allocated the then-colossal sum of $666,666 towards the construction of six powerful new frigates, four 44-gun and two 36-gun - the United States, President, Congress, Constitution, Constellation, and Chesapeake.
There were three of each: Constitution, President and United States were the three 44s; Chesapeake, Congress and Constellation were the 36s.
