Book Summary of Thieves Of Mercy

Having survived the bloody Battle of New Orleans and the loss of his ship, Captain Sam Bowater is given new orders – to take command of an ironclad warship being built in Memphis, Tennessee. Bowater and his men are taken up river by 'Mississippi' Mike Sullivan, one of the wild, undisciplined captains of the River Defence Squadron, only to find, on their arrival, that their ship is not even half-built and the enemy is closing in fast. Against his better judgment, Bowater joins forces with the Sullivan on board his river gunship. Outnumbered and outgunned, the Confederates once again fling themselves bravely at the overwhelming power of the Yankee invaders. The deadly fight along the Mississippi ends at last in the massive naval battle of Memphis, as the Confederates attempt to hold back the Northern advance.

Serendipity strikes again! This book is another gem I picked up at a charity shop (sorry James Nelson, no money for you but at least I can write an honest review).

Jim January 17, 2017 review from Goodreads

This is the second of James Nelson's Novel of the Civil War at Sea series, and since it was published in 2005, presumably it is the last one of the series. This book follows the actions of Samuel Bowater, Lt. in the Confederate Navy as well as the actions of his sweetheart, Wendy Atkins, who Bowa...

Todd June 09, 2015 review from Goodreads

Second in the series, covers the Confederate abandonment of Norfolk and the pincer movement of the Yankees north and south on the Mississippi through 1862 (brief epilogue propels the action up through the momentous date of July 4, 1863).Broader humor (well handled but not greatly done) but less t...
