Eminent U.S. Civil War historian James M. McPherson, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom, more than a dozen other Civil War-era books, and a professor who taught at Princeton for over forty years, makes this special visit with his newest work, War on the Waters: The Union & Confederate Navies, 1861 - 1865 (University of North Carolina Press). "James McPherson ... has turned his keen eye and eloquent pen to the naval war. In this new, concise history of the war at sea, McPherson not only tells an important story well, but he shows how the Union navy, with only 5 percent of Union military assets, had a disproportionate impact on the war." - Craig L. Symonds. "McPherson displays his massive knowledge of the Civil War, this time specifically concerning the naval battles ... A solid contribution to Civil War scholarship."- Kirkus Reviews.
