An American Iliad: The Story of the Civil War

An American Iliad: The Story of the Civil War Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This concise but comprehensive history reflects a synthesis of the major writings on the war, as refined and focused through Professor Roland's own research and interpretation. This is the story of the war with the emphasis on the military action, that element which distinguishes war from all other human activities. Accounts of the major political, economic, diplomatic, social, and cultural developments of the epoch are covered; approximately half of the book is devoted to them. But these discussions are woven into the central narrative in a manner designed to show their role in the war effort itself.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. ) and index.
