Konstam, Angus:  Confederate Raider 1861-65
Book Number: 004039
Osprey Pub Co  2003 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall New book, 48 pages, NVG064. The Confederate states adopted radical solutions to counter the naval superiority of their opponents. One of the more successful solutions they adopted was the use of commerce raiders. This book 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 not only the way these craft were operated and manned, but also their brutal attacks, daring escapes and climatic battles against the large numbers of Union warships forced to hunt them down. Contents: Introduction - The Early Development of the Raiding Fleet - James Bulloch’s British Raiders - The Business of Commerce Raiding - Crew - Operational History of the Confederate Raiders - Gunnery - Bibliography - Color Plate Commentary - Index.
