The CSS Hunley: The Greatest Undersea... Nine men in a rigged-out steam boiler cranked out of Breach Inlet near Mt. Pleasant, S.C. and changed naval history forever. It was not until 50 years later in 1914 that the next ship would be brought down by a submarine. This crisply written account is an excellent introduction to one of the most fascinating subplots of the entire War for Southern Independence.

 

 Union and Confederate Submarine Warfare...  Most Civil War enthusiasts have heard about the Hunley, the Confederate submarine that sank the USS Housatonic on February 17, 1864. Less well known, however, is that the Hunley was not alone in the water. Both the Union and the Confederacy built submarines; many were operational and patrolled for enemy ships


 

 The Hunley Produced for Turner Network Television and originally broadcast in the summer of 1999, The Hunley is a straightforward, engrossing historical drama focusing on a little-known chapter of the Civil War: the introduction of the submarine into American naval warfare off the shore of war-torn Charleston, South Carolina, in 1864.

 

The Confederate Navy : The Ships, Men...  Dr. Still, the dean of Confederate naval historians, is the proud editor of this tour-de-force overview of the Confederate Navy. His contributors include Bob Holcombe of the Confederate Naval Museum, Dave Sullivan, well-known researcher of the Marine Corps in the Civil War, and virtually every authority on the Confederate Navy and the naval Civil War writing today. Well-coordinated, well-illustrated, well done! Small wonder that it's advanced by the Naval Institute Press, which has a tradition of promoting and publishing fine books.

 

Raising the Hunley : The Remarkable...  The history of the Confederate submarine H. L. Hunley is as astonishing as its disappearance. On February 17, 1864, after a legendary encounter with a Union battleship, the iron “fish boat” vanished without a trace somewhere off the coast of South Carolina. For more than a century the fate of the Hunley remained one of the great unsolved mysteries of the Civil War. Then, on August 8, 2000, with thousands of spectators crowding Charleston Harbor, the Hunley was raised from the bottom of the sea and towed ashore. Now, award-winning journalists Brian Hicks and Schuyler Kropf offer new insights into the Hunley’s final hours and recount the amazing true story of its rescue.

The Hunley: Submarines, Sacrifice, and... The Hunley: Submarines, Sacrifice & Success in the Civil War" (revised edition) by Mark Ragan, 256 pages (8.5x11).
