The lion and the fox : two rival spies and the secret plot to build a Confederate Navy / Alexander Rose.

"James Bulloch, a sea captain turned Confederate agent, arrived in Liverpool at a crucial moment during the U.S. Civil War: a Union blockade was preventing Southern cotton exports from reaching Britain, threatening to destroy what was left of the Confederate economy-unless Bulloch could secretly arrange for the construction of a fleet of warships to break the northern grip on the South. Shortly thereafter, Union operative Thomas Dudley, a pious Quaker and radical abolitionist, arrived in Liverpool to stop the Confederate spy. Either man's mission, if successful, would determine the war's outcome and the country's fate. From master of historical espionage Alexander Rose, The Lion and the Fox uncovers an enthralling, unknown story at the core of the Civil War: an intense duel between two international agents who almost single-handedly decided America's war and changed the course of history"-- Provided by publisher.
