Summary
Explores the story of how mariners-- fighting "blindly" below the waterline-- lived and coped with the metal monster they called the "iron coffin." The author shows how the iron warship emerged as an idea and became practicable, how building it drew upon and forced changes in contemporary manufacturing technology, and how the vessel captured the nineteenth-century American popular and literary imaginations. He shows how technology changes not only the tools but also the very experience of combat, generating effects that are still felt today in the era of "smart bombs" and pushbutton wars
