A story in which the Confederate Navy holds the spotlight. Blocked by ineptitude, lack of materials, excess of officers and paucity of ships, the Navy eventually made its mark with a few scattered privateers, and the Alabama, operating in Arctic waters months after the war was over. A vivid portrait of the South, from its gallant pride of early achievement and hope, to the tattered remnants left by the blight of war.
