Civil War Commando: William Cushing And The Daring Raid To Sink The Ironclad CSS Albemarle
- American History, Soldier's Stories, Civil War
A brave man on a bold mission
Civil War Commando is the incredible tale of two giants on a historic collision course: Will Cushing, the United States Navy's first naval commando, and the unsinkable Confederate ironclad Albemarle.
Cushing has been cited by historians as the inspiration for Star Wars' Luke Skywalker character, and his attack on the Albemarle called the "greatest feat of arms in American military history." Yet the full story of the man has never been told--until now.
Using primary source materials, journals, and military records, richly illustrated with photos, maps, and hand-drawn schematics, Civil War Commando reveals the dramatic story of Cushing's life and the groundbreaking naval tactics he developed that saved Abraham Lincoln's presidency.
