Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In April 1861 the United States erupted into fighting at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, beginning what would become the most cataclysmic military struggle in the western world between Waterloo and the First World War. This volume focuses on events in the Virginia theater during the conflict's first two years, highlighting Union and Confederate strengths and weaknesses, leadership and strategy on each side, and the ways in which events on the battlefield influenced politics, diplomacy, and debates about emancipation.

Book News Annotation:

The series provides an accessible overview for a popular audience of a war that still figures prominently in Americans' mental landscape; it emphasizes the experiences of soldiers and ordinary people on the home front as well as generals and battles. This first volume, plentifully illustrated, explores long-term sectional tensions and the immediate political crises that triggered fighting, then moves on to the campaigns and battles that took place in Virginia, Maryland, and southern Pennsylvania between May 1861 (the eve of the Battle of Bull Run) and June 1863 (following the Confederate victory at Chancellorsville).
