"William Marvel knows how to tell a good story."
A fascinating introduction to the common sailor worthy of comparison with the best works on the war's common soldiers.
J. Tracy Power, Society for Civil War Historians Newsletter
Marvel's well-written account of life aboard the two ships should interest both the specialist and the general reader.
Journal of Southern History
[Marvel] has richly tapped new sources by locating the journals, diaries, and letters written by eyewitnesses.
Journal of American History
Highly recommended to those interested in the Civil War at sea.
Blue & Gray
Well written and persuasively argued, Marvel's study will make quite a splash.
