Book Number: 001770
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 2002 New book, 48 pages, NVG049. At the start of the American Civil War, neither side had warships on the Mississippi River and in the first few months both sides scrambled to gather a flotilla, converting existing riverboats for naval use. These ships were transformed into powerful naval weapons despite a lack of resources, trained manpower and suitable vessels. The creation of a river fleet was a miracle of ingenuity, improvisation and logistics, particularly for the South. This title describes their design, development and operation throughout the American Civil War. Covers: The Mississippi Theater, The Union River Fleet, The Confederate River Fleet, The Role of Gunboats, Ship List - Union, Ship List - Confederate.
