Osprey Elite 112 : American Civil War Marines 1861-1865

The part played in the American Civil War by the small Marine Corps of the United States and Confederate States is overshadowed by the confrontations of the great armies. Nevertheless, the coastal and riverine campaigns were of real importance, given the strategic significance of the Federal blockade of southern ports, and of the struggle for the Mississippi River. Marines wearing blue and grey fought in many dramatic actions afloat and ashore, ship-to-ship engagements, cutting-out expeditions, and coastal landings. This book offers a comprehensive summary of all such battles, illustrated with rare early photographs, and meticulously researched colour plates detailing the often obscure minutiae of Marine uniforms and equipment. Text by Ron Field with illustrations by Richard Hook.
