Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Editor Thomsen adds notably to his roster of historical anthologies with this selection of writings by naval participants in the Civil War that perforce delves into what for many readers will be relatively unknown territory, because knowledge of the naval side of the war is hardly general. The relatively famous Confederate raider Alabama is represented, of course, but by a junior officer's testimony rather than the celebrated Captain Semmes' account. A set of documents chronicles the ingenious, ill-fated Confederate submarine Hunley, and officers of both the Monitor and the Merrimac describe the ironclads' storied duel. Admiral David Porter, who did a great deal, claims to have done even more. Admiral David Farragut's letters bespeak a man of superior achievements and character, only enhancing his stature as the war's naval hero and one of the supreme sea fighters in American history. Other selections remind us that Dewey and Schley, in high command for the Spanish American War, were junior officers during the Civil War. A book that informs in its own right and encourages further reading. Roland Green
