Description - Great Britain and the Confederate Navy, 1861-1865 by Frank J. Merli
This book, originally issued in 1970, describes the frustrated, faltering, and sometimes heroic attempts of the Confederacy to circumvent British neutrality and build a navy in Great Britain during the American Civil War. The story possesses many of the elements of good fiction: there are the sharply rendered principal actors; the suspense and narrative excitement of the adventures of the Southern raiders; and the cunning appraisals of diplomatic intrigues, manoeuvrings, and oversights. This is a readable and illuminating account of the diplomatic manoeuvrings behind the Confederacy's failed attempt to enlist British aid for the secessionist cause.
