Captain John Clibbon Brain of the Confederate States Navy launched himself into the American Civil War with a verve and gusto which belied his origins in a Gloucestershire village in peaceful, rural England. At the beginning of the war he emigrated to the United States and enthusiastically took up a military career. He was soon transferred to the Confederate Navy where his recklessness and bravado ensured his success as a privateer.

The Last of the Confederate Privateers gives an entertaining overview of the activities of John Clibbon Brain, an English citizen who served as a privateer for the Confederate Navy. The book is written by a distant relative, and anyone looking for an impartial analysis of Brain's activities should be warned that the tone of the text is partisan as a result of that relationship. The book also suffers from some factual inaccuracies, perhaps as a result of the author being in Britain and the publication of the book pre-dating easy Internet access for fact-checking. As an example, Fort Lafayette is referenced several times as being in Massachusetts, when in fact it was in New York harbor. These flaws aside, the book is still interesting for its glimpse into some lesser known stories of the war.
