Description


From renowned author John D. McAulay comes the first reliable and comprehensive guide to the firearms and edged weapons of the Civil War Navy and Marine Corps. This fascinating book starts during the 1850s, and then proceeds to cover each of the war years in surprising detail, listing specific weapons used on specific ships and in specific engagements. The variety of weapons covered is amazing. Arms inventories for nearly 400 vessels are carefully transcribed for your use, showing guns, swords pikes, knives and accoutrements. 216 black and white photos, coated paper and cover art by famous nautical artist Tom Freeman. See why Norm Flayderman calls this "a highly significant addition to the lore of American arms history...the cornerstone for understanding this subject."
