Summary
Based on extensive "primary-source research, this is the first full history--from a naval perspective--of the fort on North Carolina's Cape Fear River and its little-known significance as both the Achilles' heel of the Union blockade and the lifeline of the Confederacy."--Jacket
Summary
Robinson (US history, South Texas Community College, McAllen) rescues from obscurity the two Civil War battles of Fort Fisher, North Carolina, eclipsed by General Grant's concurrent operations against Richmond. The author depicts a well-documented account of the naval assault against "the Achilles' heel of the Union blockade," including b&w illustrations of the site (now a state park), key players, ships, and maps.
