Confederate Admiral: The Life and Times of Franklin Buchanan, by Craig L. Symonds

Annapolis: Naval Institute Press, 1999. Pp. xvi, 274. Illus, notes, biblio., index. $32.95. ISBN:1-55750-844-5.

A true “life and times,” Confederate Admiral looks not only at Buchanan’s services to the South during the Civil War, but at his whole life, including his numerous contributions to the evolution of the U.S Navy, as well as his short, but rather impressive career of the Confederate Navy. Valuable for anyone interested in the naval history of the Civil War.

Reviewer: A. A. Nofi
