In this account, Chester G. Hearn tells the story of the confederate cruisers - eight ships built mostly in Great Britain - whose mission was to devastate Union commerce and draw off the blockading Yankee squadron strangling the South's economy. Hearn enriches his tale with biographical detail on the ships' commanders, and examines the British perspective, explaining England's motivation to undertake the clandestine construction of the warships.
