    One of the better sea adventures because the hero is real

    Not since Patrick O'Brian has a writer captured the frisson of sliding across the footrope at the yardarm of a 19th century naval ship, high above the deck in a raging storm, as has Robert A Jones in Confederate Corsair.

    Great Action story!

    Admiral Dewey said 'America never produced a navy officer more worthy of a place in history' and thanks to Jones he has it and we've got a great book to read! Read captured over 20 union ships and burned most of them - he was captured once, made several nearly successful escape attempts, and at one point had over 30 Union ships at sea just to try to stop him. The main part of the book reads like an action novel, but it's all real - as he moves from river warfare to commerce raiding and back, but it has a detailed, 23 page section of notes and an 11 page bibliography. So you'll learn a lot about the naval side of the war, and lots of information is there for those doing research - but read it first for the story - you'll love it!
