Description - Confederate Raider 1861-65 by Angus Konstam

The Confederate states adopted radical solutions to counter the naval superiority of their opponents. One solution was the adoption of commerce raiders. This work describes the reasons which forced the confederates to resort to commerce raiding, and outlines the way in which these craft were converted or specially built to perform their role. It details the way these craft operated, how they were manned, and how they fought.
