Pleased to pass along a new review from LSU’s “Civil War Book Review” of my navy volume.
Here’s my favorite part: “Faces of the Civil War Navies is a notable addition to anyone’s Civil War library – whether they are interested in the War’s naval history or social aspects. Coddington does a worthy job providing scholarly biographies that are both interesting to read and informative. The scholarly nature of this work can be appreciated through the thoroughly cited entries, and extensive bibliography. In the end Faces of the Civil War Navies does accomplish Coddington’s goal of adding the human story of the war at sea.”
