Book Review of Reign of Iron by James L Nelson
My name is Angus and I’ve recently begun work experience at the Millennium Library. Today was my first time working in the 2nd Air Division Memorial Library and I was blown away by the selection of books on offer. From Cold War planes to WW2 stories of fallen soldiers, there’s something for everyone with any interest in American history.
While helping to fill in the shelves I noticed Reign of Iron, a book about the first battling ironclads during the American Civil War. For such a significant moment in both American and global history, not nearly enough research has been done into how and why the two warring nations managed to build warships out of something other than wood. Just from reading the blurb I can tell the author knows his stuff, and I expect the whole book to be both informative and enthralling.
