An interesting read covers every engagement involving ironclads from Hampton Roads to the Bombardment of Alexandria.
Filled with maps, reports, and detailed summaries of the actions and vessels involved.
I found lots of information here that I have not found anywhere else, and at 920 pages in two volumes it would be a weighty tome in paper.
Highly recommended for any fans of this fascinating period of Naval history.
