As the Confederacy felt itself slipping beneath the Union juggernaut in late 1864, the South launched a desperate counteroffensive to force a standoff. Its secret weapon? A state-of-the-art raiding ship whose mission was to sink the U.S. merchant fleet. The raider's name was Shenandoah, and her executive officer was Conway Whittle, a 24-year-old warrior.

Well Paced, Very Detailed
This is one of those rare history books that covers a specific event, seemingly inconsequential, and makes it fascinating. The detail is exceptional, thanks to the source of the material, and the narration considerably above avarage. While not a nail-biter, this audio book is very engaging.
Hollywood butchered "Ghost Soldiers" but this would be a good chance to make amends.
