The Hunley (Paperback)

The Hunley (Paperback)
    Mark Ragan's story, The Hunley, depicts the small iron submarine prowling the waters outside Charleston Harbor during the fall and winter of 1863-64. Operating at night with only a single candle to illuminate its crude depth gauge and compass, this hand-cranked vessel ventured several miles out to sea in search of an enemy warship. On the night of February 17, 1864, the Confederate torpedo boat H.L. Hunley became the first submarine in history to sink an enemy ship. It was a feat not repeated until World War I, over fifty years later. Publication Date: Nov. 2006; 360 pp
