Raising the Hunley

The Remarkable History and Recovery
of the Lost Confederate Submarine

“A rich tale of one of America’s greatest sagas that is as suspenseful as adventure fiction.” —Clive Cussler

“Lively and engrossing … Well-documented and well-written, Raising the Hunley is a rousing adventure story.”
—Chicago Tribune

“This riveting narrative features a winning combination of Civil War arcana, maritime history, and underwater archaeology.”
