Book review

The first in a series on the American Civil War at sea, The Chesapeake Command finds shipwreck, Indian raids and the threat of war with Great Britain confronting two US Navy officers, one Irish, one black, on the eve of the Civil War. Rory Dunbrody and Tobias St. John, sea officers and best friends, are thrust into armed confrontation with the Royal Navy over possession of remote San Juan Island. Only deft diplomacy averts a shooting war. These two friends overcome the obstacle of their ethnicities by exemplary service in the elite US Coast Survey, the finest cartographic organization in the world. Then, these two comrades are separated by the Civil War. Rory, now a Confederate Navy lieutenant, and Tobias, a Union sailing master, struggle to maintain their friendship as they battle the enemy and one another in New Orleans, Chesapeake Bay and the Carolina coasts. This 2nd edition adds detail, a glossary and a historical note that were not available for the first edition.
