The story of the USS Monitor, the first seagoing ironclad whose profile has made her one of the most easily recognised warships of all time. Following her battle with the Confederate ironclad Virginia on 9 March 1862, the production of Union monitors was accelerated and by the end of the year a powerful squadron of vessels was able to challenge Confederate control of ports and estuaries. This book covers the design, development and operational history of the Union's monitor fleet. 48 illustrated pages including 6 in colour.
