From renowned author John D. McAulay comes the first reliable and comprehensive guide to the firearms and edged weapons of the Civil War Navy and Marine Corps. This fascinating book starts during the 1850s and then proceeds to cover each of the war years in surprising detail, listing specific weapons used on specific ships and in specific engagements. What will amaze even the most casual reader is the amount of action seen by these small arms. The Navy is best known for its famous blockade, but sailors and marines also fought in countless land battles, river actions and skirmishes where small arms played a crucial part in the action. The variety of weapons covered is amazing! For instance, arms inventories for nearly 400 vessels are carefully transcribed for your use, showing guns, swords, pikes, knives and accoutrements by Colt, Hall, Jenks, Ames, Perry, Sharps, North-Savage, Joslyn, Sharps & Hankins, Spencer, Starr, Remington, Maynard, Whitney, Smith as well as Enfields, Springfields, Plymouth Rifles, Naval Officers' Swords, Cutlasses, Single-Shot Pistols, Battle Axes, Single Sticks, Bayonets, Marine Corps Swords and Bowie knives - plus much, much more. This book absolutely reinvents the study of Civil War Naval and Marine Corps weaponry, and will be a constant resource for collectors and historians alike. Deluxe paper, 216 photos.
