Now, with unparalleled authority, depth, and a vivid sense of the excitement and danger of the time, Stephen Fox describes Captain Semmes's remarkable wartime exploits.
Thrilling and excellent (with minor reservations)

Very good book about a Southern hero. Written very well and narrated for audible very nicely. The author presents a fairly unbiased view of the man based in written accounts of supporters, captured enemies, family members, and his own captains journal. I would recommend the book to anyone wanting to learn more about the famous Captain and famous ship.
