Summary:
"Immortalized by David Farragut's apothegm, "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead," the Battle of Mobile Bay remains one of history's great naval engagements, a contest between two admirals trained in the same naval tradition who once fought under the same flag. This new study takes a fresh look at the battle - the bloodiest naval battle of the Civil War - examining its genesis, tactics, and political ramifications.
