Essential reading for any serious Civil War buff. The author has a competent style and weaves the different narrative threads together much better than the average writer. This book will make you want to find out even more about the revolutionary ironclads...

John I didn't think he gave enough nautical background. He would just launch into discussion of shipbuilding issues or a similar topic and expect the reader to be familiar with the vocab. Overall very good though.
