The electrifying story of Raphael Semmes and the CSS Alabama, the Confederate raider that destroyed Union ocean shipping and took more prizes than any other raider in naval history. In July, 1862, Semmes received orders to take command of a secret new British-built steam warship, the Alabama. At its helm, he would become the most hated and feared man in ports up and down the Union coasta€”and a Confederate legend. Now, with unparalleled authority and depth, and with a vivid sense of the excitement and danger of the time, Stephen Fox tells the story of Captain Semmes's remarkable wartime exploits. From vicious naval battles off the coast of France, to plundering the cargo of Union ships in the Caribbean, this is a thrilling tale of an often overlooked chapter of the Civil War. From the Trade Paperback edition.the stern was stove in, then vanished. Other parts of the ship, in particular the main yard (the spar that supported and spread a workhorse sail on the mainmast) , were broken or destroyed. ... a€œI must capture another ship now directly, a€ Semmes wrote in his journal, a€œto enable me to repair damages and replace my boats.
