Uncover the story of the Civil War's ironclad warships with the New York Times bestselling graphic novel series!

Ships are great for transport and sieges, but they tend to start leaking when cannons are fi red at them. But what if the ship is covered with iron? Assuming it doesn’t sink to the bottom of the ocean, wouldn’t it be stronger and better than any other ship out there? This is the question that begins a race between the North and the South to come up with the biggest, best ironclad warships.

Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales are graphic novels that tell the thrilling, shocking, gruesome, and TRUE stories of American history. Read them all—if you dare!

      This was a book about the civil war, by Nathan Hale. I liked this book, but I wouldn't call it one of my favorites. The idea of Americans fighting against each other and so many people dying wasn't very appealing to me. But history is history, and without learning about the bad things, we don't strive to prevent bad things from happening again. I recommend this to anyone mature to understand the seriousness of war and the end of slavery.
