I have mentioned before on another thread that I regard Semmes as one of the wars more interesting characters and I love his story, commerce raiding in command of the "Sumter" and "Alabama", his sinking by "Kearsarge", escaping in time to command the James River Squadron before ending his war as an hon. Brig. General. I do have the book you ask about and have tried to read it several times but unfortunately I find it a seriously heavy read and I have never yet got far with it.One day though.....
