Publisher Comments:

Author Joseph Wheelan has marvelously captured the story of Americas war against the Barbary pirates, our first war against terror and the nations that support it. The Barbary pirates, a Muslim enemy from Tripoli, attacked European and American merchant shipping with impunity. Jefferson ordered the U.S. Navy to Tripoli in 1801 to repel "force with force." The Barbary War was also a proving ground for such young officers as William Bainbridge, Stephen Decatur, Isaac Hull, and David Porter –key players in the impending War of 1812 against Great Britain.

Synopsis:

Wheelan captures the story of America's first war against terror and the nations that supported it. With telling illustrations, "Jefferson's War" traces the events surrounding the evolution of the third president's resolute belief that peace with the Barbary States, and respect from Europe, could be achieved only through the "medium of war."

Synopsis:

A fascinating and readable story of how America fought and won its first war on terror – two centuries ago." – Evan Thomas, author of JOHN PAUL JONES and assistant managing editor, NEWSWEEK
