Southern fire: exploits of the Confederate States Navy
Southern Fire continues Campbell's exciting account of the naval war of the Confederate States. Within these covers, he describes, in vivid detail, additional battles and engagements fought by Southern naval forces against a well equipped and relentless foe. The Confederate naval saga has been largely ignored in American history. This third work in his series, however, helps to fill that void. Using selected engagements, the author tells the fascinating story of the victories and defeats of the South's naval forces.
