This book tells of the Civil War campaigns of David Farragut. Thoroughly researched and compellingly written, this book examines Farragut''s command of the most daring and important assignment of the Civil War: the mission to recapture the vital Southern port of New Orleans.
"Duffy argues that Farragut's actions had more to do with the downfall of the Confederacy than some of the more celebrated land battles. A highly readable chronicle of a remarkable man, and an exciting account of decisive incidents in naval history."
"Mr. Duffy is primarily interested in fighting ships. He makes their equipment and performance and the reasons for Farragut's decisions thoroughly absorbing and understandable."
