The Best Station of Them All is the story of the Confederate navy's Savannah Squadron, its relationship with the people of Savannah, Georgia, and its role in the city's economy. In this well-written and extensively researched narrative, Maurice Melton charts the history of the unit, the sailors (both white and black), the officers, their families, and their activities aboard ship and in port. The Savannah Squadron worked, patrolled, and fought in the rivers and sounds along the Georgia coast. Though they saw little activity at sea, the unit did engage in naval assault, boarding, capture, and ironclad combat. The sailors finished the war as an infantry unit in Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, fighting at Sayler's Creek on the road to Appomattox. Melton concentrates on navy life and the squadron's place in wartime Savannah. The book reveals who the Confederate sailors were and what their material, social, and working lives were like. The Best Station of Them All is an essential piece of historical literature for anyone interested in the Civil War, its navies, or Savannah.… (mais)

On the whole I found this to be rather strange book in that author offers what seems to be a complete history of Confederate naval forces operating out of Savannah (the backbone of the narrative being the rise and fall of the ironclad "Atlanta") but offers nothing in the way of personal analysis or consideration of what he intended to achieve with this work or what he felt the whole exercise meant in the end. I can only speculate on what's the rationalization for the sphinx-like authorial silence. If one is already somewhat knowledgeable about the period and the topic there is much to be gained from wading in to this narrative, otherwise one would be better off starting with Luragi's history of the C.S.N.
