West Point Press
Britta Hanson graduated from Northwestern University in 2012 with majors in English and History. This paper is the product of a grant to conduct research in the National Archives of the United Kingdom, and it went on to win Departmental Honors and the North American British Studies Conference's Undergraduate Essay Contest. Britta's interest in the Royal Navy can be credited to her childhood love of C.S. Forester's “Horatio Hornblower” series.
