Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A dynamic Civil War book with a fresh angle from an award-winning writer.  Bobrick profiles General George H. Thomas, an overlooked scion of the Civil War, and shows the military choices that saved the Union.  Also examined are President Lincoln, the causes of the war and the various personalities who have shaped our understanding of the war today.  This compelling book, rich with visuals including maps, photos, original documents, and more, offers new insights into a key topic for American homes and classrooms. A particularly exciting read for boys.

The Battle of Nashville is another contribution to Knopf's list of high quality nonfiction such as Children of the Dust Bowl by Jerry Stanley and Shipwreck at the Bottom of the World by Jennifer Armstrong.

Synopsis:

This volume profiles the career of General George H. Thomas, and his role in winning the Civil War. While the book focuses on the Battle of Nashville, it also examines his other experiences during the Civil War.
