Confederate Coal Torpedo
Item #: NST
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a thorough examination of a little known device--the Confederate coal torpedo. This weapon of sabotage, disguised as a simple lump of coal, could have played a much greater role in the war had it been employed vigorously from the start. The reluctance of the warring governments to engage in the use of mines, torpedos, and sabotage in the beginning of the war was quite genteel and revealing. By the time the horrors of the Civil War had numbed America such inventions were embraced by authorities--too late to save the South, however.
Authors Joseph and Thomas Thatcher have done an amazing job of research to present this fascinating book. Softbound, 124 pages, B x W illustrated.
