Another new book is due out at the end of this month, April 2009.

It is entitled "The Most Perfect Cruiser", and was written by Stephen C Kinnaman.

The book will be published by Dogear Publishing.

The Most Perfect Cruiser is the story of how the Confederacy got to sea the most deadly of its raiders, the C.S.S. Alabama.

This book offers a fresh interpretation of many of the key events surrounding Alabama’s origins, and provides an operational, hands-on account of James Bulloch’s most remarkable achievement.
