The ultimate Civil War sea battle
On June 19, 1864, just off the coast of France, one of the most dramatic naval battles in history took place. The dreaded Confederate raider Alabama faced the Union warship Kearsarge in an all-or-nothing fight to the finish, the outcome of which would effectively end the threat of the Confederacy on the high seas.
In this enthralling book, authors Phil Keith and Tom Clavin introduce crucial but historically overlooked players, including John Winslow, captain of the USS Kearsarge, as well as Raphael Semmes, captain of the CSS Alabama. Readers will sail aboard the Kearsarge, as Winslow embarks for Europe with a set of simple orders: "Travel to the uttermost ends of the earth, if necessary, to find and destroy the Alabama."
