40 ARMSTRONG, Warren SEMMES, Raphael Cruise of a Corsair. First Edition in dustjacket
Cassell, London, 1963, 
ARMSTRONG, Warren. Cruise of a Corsair. London : Cassell, (1963). First Printing. Pp (8),[1]-207,(1) + frontispiece + . Illustrated. Double page chartin text. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Myron Smith, American Civil War Navies : A Bibliography 246. "The Alabama, a beautifully modelledthousand ton wooden barquentine, was built by the British firm of Laird's at Birkenhead in 1862. She had been commissioned by the Confederate States of America as a merchantman. And although suspicions were arroused as to her real purpose, she managed to escape the British Government's order for her arrest and detention. Once out of British waters she was quickly and efficiently converted into one of the most powerful warships of her day.. Cruise of a Corsair is the story of how, under the brilliant command of her captain, Raphael Semmes, Alabama played a major part in crippling the sea powerof the North in the American Civil War. Captain Semmes, late of the United States Navy, had to overcome a great many difficulties in keeping his ship in perfect fighting order; his crew, a motley bunch of men, were often on the verge of mutiny, he was seldom able to have the ship properly overhauled, and they encountered two crippling hurricanes. Yet for two destructive years, Alabama roved the seas, both of the Old World and of the New, in which time she sank the U.S.S. Hatteras, which had been sent to destroy her , intercepted and burned fifty-three American merchantmen, released another nine on ransom bond, and sold one outright. Finally, battle-scarred, in desperate need of an overhaul, and in nof fit state for combat, she was sunk in the English Channel by the United States warship, Kearsarge, on June 19, 1864, off Cherbourg. The Alabama lay rotting on the floor of the English Channel, but the 'international' question she posed was not to be resolved for several years. In 1873, after much discussion, the United States of Americawere awarded one third of their nine million pound claim for compensation against the British Government. But as General Grant observed in his Message at the close of the year, the chief good resulting from the arbitration award was that it 'left Britian and the United States without a shadow on their friendly ralations'. It left also the memories of brave men and bold deeds, examples of courage and skill which have become part of the heritage of all sailors." - from the dj flap.
