Über diesen Titel
Six lavishly illustrated volumes are a comprehensive guide to the Civil War. The volumes describe in detail battles from 1861 to 1865, featuring authentic narratives of each campaign. Chapters recreate the clash of armies, tactics, strategies and outcomes of battles.From Library Journal:
These volumes offer a copious and gripping chronological account of the military campaigns of the Civil War. The work of many hands--including such prize-winning historians as editor McPherson, Stephen Oates, Stephen Sears, Emory Thomas, the late Bell Wiley, and the late T. Harry Williams--the volumes draw heavily on articles and illustrations from the Civil War Times Illustrated . The writing is crisp but relentlessly military, filled with the smell of sulphur and the clank of steel. The authors remind us that battles win wars. In his connective, overview essays, McPherson offers a few bows to politics, diplomacy, and emancipation, and the last volume adds brief biographies of Lincoln and Davis, among others. But battles and generals command the stage. The one chapter devoted to the common soldier has little of the new scholarship on soldiers' attitudes toward war and responses to it. These volumes will not supplant the interpretive force and narrative sweep of Bruce Catton, Shelby Foote, or McPherson ( Battle Cry of Freedom , LJ 3/1/88; an LJ "Best Book of 1988"). Still, public and college libraries will find them indispensable reference sources.
