Ironclads at War: The Monitor vs the Merrimac (Graphic History, Volume 8)

By Dan Abnett

On March nine, 1862, the realm observed the 1st conflict among ironclad warships; a conflict which might switch the face of naval war ceaselessly. The struggle came about within the Mississippi River, Virginia, among the newly-developed accomplice ironclad CSS Merrimac - formally the CSS Virginia - and the Union's counterpart USS visual display unit. The four-hour duel that ensued was once finally a stalemate, yet crucially, regardless of their most sensible efforts, the Confederacy had failed back to damage the Northern blockade of the Southern ports. This sketch narrative illustrates probably the most progressive naval battles in global heritage and transports the reader to the cramped and hazardous stipulations that the sailors confronted for the 1st time. for additional info, please stopover at www.graphichistories.com
