The Sinking of the ''Merrimac''
Description The Sinking of the ''Merrimac''
During the Spanish-American War, Naval Constructor Hobson U.S.N. devised a plan to scuttle a ship in the channel leading to Santiago harbor in Cuba and thus bottle up the Spanish fleet at anchor in the bay. This book contains Hobson's personal narrative of how the scheme was carried out and of what happened afterward. ( Delmar H. Dolbier)
