Praise for Capital Navy

The research and writing is balanced, exciting, and timely... a concise, well written and enlightening history... Savas Beatie has scored another major coup with Capital Navy."

- Edwin C. Bearss,
author of The Vicksburg Campaign

"I am extremely impressed with John Coski¹s research. He found things that I did not know even existed. Capital Navy is a model for similar works on the Confederate navy in Savannah. Charleston, Mobile, etc. It should make a very popular book."

- William N. Still, Jr.,
author of Iron Afloat and Confederate Shipbuilding

“The research and writing contains much new material and is a study certainly long overdue.”

- Robert Holcombe,
Director, Confederate Naval Museum
