"Iron Afloat will appeal to scholars and Civil War buffs alike and should remain the standard work on Confederate ironclads for a long time, since the author has exhausted just about all the sources now known"—Florida Historical Quarterly
"The result of Dr. Still's effort is a book not only highly readable but also one that will be used for reference for many years to come. In short, this is historical reporting at its best."—James I. Robertson
