Strangling the Confederacy
While the Civil War is mainly remembered for its epic battles between the Northern and Southern armies, the Union was simultaneously waging another campaign-dubbed 'Anaconda' -that was gradually depriving the South of industry and commerce, thus rendering the exploits of its field armies moot.

This is a very good book that details events in a little-known campaign to enforce Linconln's blockade. It is very interesting for military historians, especially those who follow the US Civil War. other military historians might find it interesting, while people who are not into the details of military history might find it a tad boring.
