John Paul Jones (6 July 1747 – 18 July 1792) was a Scottish American sailor and the United States' first well-known naval fighter in the American Revolutionary War.

On the instructions of President Teddy Roosevelt, the preserved mortal remains of John Paul Jones were escorted back to the United States on the USS Brooklyn, surrounded by warships of the U.S. Navy, in 1905. This was a fitting tribute to the barefooted son of a Scottish gardener who, born in 1747, was destined to become the Father of the US Navy through his dogged determination and dauntless courage on the high seas. At an early age he went to sea as a cabin boy, becoming a captain in his own right at the age of twenty-one in the British merchant service. He ended up in Philadelphia and offered his services to the infant American navy, becoming its ablest and most dashing commander, raising "Old Glory" for the first time ever to the jackstaff of the USS Alfred, then attacking British ports in the US war of independence. His hour of glory was on the USS Bon Homme Richard when he engaged the Royal Navy off Flamborough Head. When all the odds were against him, and the. skipper of the HMS Serapis, Captain Pearson, demanded his surrender, his immortal reply was, "I have not yet begun to fight!" On return to the United States, he ended up supervising and launching his flagship, the USS America. This book will have you spellbound by the colorful narrative of his life.

I totally enjoyed this reading. It was written in from the view of John Paul Jones perspective, and presented history through his eyes. A great read, that any Sailor of the U.S. Navy would benefit from since it is about the father of our Navy.

I had the distinct pleasure of running into Mr. Wallace Bruce (aka Joe Smith) on a train in the Scottish Highlands. He is a very kind and knowledgeable man. We talked as the train continued on and he told me he had written a book about an American patriot/hero (my American accent was a dead give-away) and began to discuss the history of John Paul Jones.
Mr. Bruce became animated, happy and excited as he retold the history of John Paul Jones. This same excitement and love for the subject is clearly evident in his book. It is a great read and I highly recommend it to any fan of American history.
Fantastic job Mr. Bruce!
