Overview

Southern Thunder follows the success of Gray Thunder with more exciting accounts of the exploits of the Confederate States Navy. Within these covers are described, in vivid detail, additional battles and engagements fought by the Southern navy against a well equipped and relentless foe. The Confederate navy has been greatly ignored in the accounts of the War Between the States; this second work in a series, however, helps to fill that void. Using selected episodes, the author tells the fascinating story of the many victories and defeats of the South's navy, as it struggled with sparse resources against unbelievable odds.
