A Ph.D on British blockade
In 2011 British naval historian Brian Arthur's book How Britain Won The War Of 1812: The Royal Navy's Blockades of the United States, 1812 -1815
was published. It is very expensive and unless your local library has a copy you are unlikely to have an opportunity to read it. Arthur based his book on this Ph.D titled The Royal Navy and Economic Warfare in North America, 1812 - 1815
. The book and the Ph.D are not exactly the same but by reading his doctoral thesis you will still be familiar with much of Arthur's research and analysis. His Ph.D is in two pdf files listed in the links below.
To delight in war is a merit in the soldier, a dangerous quality in the captain, and a positive crime in the statesman. - George Santayana
