"This book provides an historical overview of impressment, in which naval officers oversaw a gang that abducted British and American citizens, and held them captive until they were sent to sea as unwilling sailors. Included are personal accounts of thirteen men and a chapter on Dartmoor Prison which held thousands of impressed Americans during the War of 1812"--Provided by publisher.
