Ironclads at War: The Origin and Development of the Armored Warship, 1854-1891 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many readers will learn for the first time of the influence on both Union and Confederate observers of Crimean War and other European armor, and learn the subsequent history of many Civil War naval vessels that later saw action in Peru, Paraguay, and Japan.
