Perilous Fight hits the tabloids

It must say something about these troubled times in which we live that the New York Post devotes almost as much space to its Sunday book coverage as does the Washington Post. (The latter might want to consider renaming its "Book World" section "Book Refuge," now that it's down to 3 pages.) In any case, I feel I've really made it now that the former ran a piece from me yesterday about my new War of 1812 book, describing the life of the typical sailor of that era.
It's a bit on the yo-ho-ho-and-a-bottle-of-rum side, but as it marks my debut in the tabloids, I will defend it to the death.
