New book, 257 pages. During its clandestine construction in Liverpool, it was known as 'Number 290'. When it was finally unleashed as the CSS Alabama, the Confederate warship triggered the last great military campaign of the Civil War; a maritime adventure unparalleled in history; an infamous example of British political treachery; and the largest ever retribution tribunal: $15,500 in gold paid by Britain to the United States. This riveting true story of the Anglo-Confederate alliance that led to the creation of a Southern navy brings to light the dramatic global impact of the American Civil War.
