Glory In The Name PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Glory In The Name free pdf At the outbreak of the Civil War, the Confederate Navy must defend nearly 3,000 miles of coastline with only a meagre collection of ships and a handful of men. These include Sam Bowater, a former lieutenant in the United States Navy, who obtains his cherished first command in a tugboat turned gunboat, the Cape Fear, with a ragtag crew. Struggling with the pressures of his first command, in a naval service which is still learning the ropes, Bowater finds himself and his men the only defence between the Confederate shores and the massive Union Navy. From Hampton Roads to Roanoke Island, to an exciting, bloody night time river fight for New Orleans, Glory In The Name vividly brings to life the dramatic naval battles of the Civil War.
