If I wrote the section “Perry’s Victory” in my history book i would have definatly elaborated more on the challenges Oliver Perry faced during battle. The book just states, that “the battle lasted for more than three hours and resulted in heavy casualities for both sides.” After looking into some of the troubles Oliver Perry went through i found out that things started going wrong even before he set off, which the book didn’t mention. Before he set off to war, Perry found out there was a shortage in supplies and men. During the war, some heavy casualties were, on the British ships, most of the senior officers were wounded or killed. I think that the book should have written more detail about the war because without it, the reader can’t really understand what the people were going through.
