About this product
- DescriptionWhen Frank J. Merli died in December 2000, he left many manuscripts related to Great Britain and the American Civil War. At the request of Merli's widow, David M. Fahey has edited this volume for publication. It offers a spirited critique of the way historians have presented the international dimension of the American Civil War. The book offers a fresh account of the escape of the CSS Alabama from British territorial waters in 1862, the decision of its captain, Raphael Semmes, to fight a Union gunboat off the coast of France in 1864, and the curious story of a British-built Chinese flotilla that could have become a small Confederate fleet had negotiations with the Chinese t broken down. The book will appeal to naval and diplomatic historians and to all Civil War buffs.
- Author BiographyFrank J. Merli (1929-2000) was Professor of History at Queens College in the City University of New York.

David M. Fahey is Professor of History at Miami University of Ohio and author of Temperance and Racism: John Bull, Johnny Reb, and the Good Templars and co-editor of Alcohol and Temperance in Modern History: An International Encyclopedia.
