I love reading about our nation’s history, but I’ve never considered how the United States Navy was formed. Not until I read Not Self But Country by David C. Perry, which is a fictional version of those early days of the Revolution, did I realize what a monumental feat it was.
Author David Perry expertly composes the daily lives of those who helped form the first US Navy. You feel the salt spray on your lips and relive the struggle of enemy capture after a harrowing sea battle. His writing is superb and the picture he paints for the reader makes this book an enjoyable and informative read. What’s more, is that Not Self But Country is the beginning of a series. Not only has Perry offered us the first, but he also has the second novel published as well, titled The Crucible of Tradition.
Both books are currently only .99 on Amazon! To read more about this author and his other works you can visit his website at Leadership, Legends and Lore.
