Publisher's Description

At the outbreak of the Civil War, Jefferson Davis sent merchant marine James D. Bulloch to Europe to clandestinely acquire arms and ships for the Confederate navy. His first stop was Britain, a country hedging its bets on who would win the War Between the States and willing to secretly provide the Confederacy with the naval technology to fight the Union on the high seas. Bulloch's mission continued for the length of the war, and his story, told by the man himself, is one of the least-understood aspects of the Civil War, even today.

Author Bio

James D. Bulloch was born in Savannah, Georgia, in 1823 and became a midshipman in the U. S. navy at the age of sixteen. After the war he remained in England, where his nephew, a young Theodore Roosevelt, visited him in the 1870s while researching what would become his first book, The Naval War of 1812.

Philip Van Doren Stern (1900-1984) was one of the most influential Civil War historians of the twentieth century.
