Description: Continuing in the vein of the Lincoln-prize winningLincoln and His Admirals, acclaimed naval historian Craig L. Symonds presents an operational history of the Civil War navies -- both Union and Confederate -- in this concise volume. Illuminating how various aspects of the naval engagement influenced the trajectory of the war as a whole,The Civil War at Seaadds to our understanding of America's great national conflict.Both the North and the South developed and deployed hundreds of warships between 1861 and 1865. Because the Civil War coincided with a revolution in naval techonology, the development and character of warfare at sea from 1861-1865 was dramatic and unprecedented. Rather than a simple chronology of the war at sea, Symonds addresses the story of the naval war topically, from the dramatic transformation wrought by changes in technology to the establishment, management, and impact of blockade. He also offers critical assessments of principal figures in the naval war, from the opposing secretaries of the navy to leading operational commanders such as David Glasgow Farragut and Raphael Semmes.Symonds brings his expertise and knowledge of military and technological history to bear in this essential exploration of American naval engagement throughout the Civil War.
