Praise for Jack D. Coombe’s

Gunfire Around the Gulf

“Although the navy contributed enormously to union victory, books on the land war outnumber naval books by hundreds to one. Mr. Coombe’s blood-and-thunder narrative helps redress the balance.”
The Wall Street Journal

“A well-done study, clearly written…a worthwhile addition to Civil War collections.” –Library Journal

“Mr. Coombe makes fine use of those anecdotes and details that turn up in civil war records…and brings his own experience [as a navy veteran] to bear on the civil war navies….an effective approach to history.”
The Atlantic Monthly

Thunder Along the Mississippi

“Essential for anyone with an interest in Civil War naval operations or the war in the west.”
Library Journal

“Fascinating…Coombe is a skilled writer….this work will be a delight for Civil War buffs, but there is also much here for the well-informed general reader too.”
