Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Historian Shelby Foote, commentator on Ken Burns' Civil War PBS miniseries, once noted that the material available on the war's Eastern theater has eclipsed notice of naval engagements in what was then considered the West. These essays by three authors of other works on the Civil War treat this under-researched aspect of American history. Titles include: "Technology Afloat," "Admiral Goldborough's Feisty Career," and "Potomac Flotilla: A Gunboat Captain's Diary." Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
