America Raids Britain, Paperback / softback Book


John Paul Jones was born in Scotland and apprenticed for seamanship at Whitehaven.

Later in America, he became a captain of a war ship.

In 1778 America was fighting for its declared independence.

In an audacious attack on England, John Paul Jones had returned to raid Whitehaven and subsequently Scotland and Ireland.

This retaliation for the many attacks made upon American ports by the British navy sent shock waves across the UK.
