Overview

Of the hundreds of books about the Civil War, none so effectively charts the battle-by-battle movements of that war as this unique volume.

Accompanied by a series of magnificently detailed maps, showing the progress of the war in both East and West simultaneously, these crisp, informative accounts of the principal battles unfold the decisive moments of the war with suspenseful immediacy. The maps allow readers to watch the battle lines moving back and forth across the country and to see how each individual battle fits into the whole pattern of the war.

Decisive Battles of the Civil War is not only a superb reference volume, it is also an invaluable guidebook for visitors to these historic battlefields.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Excellent...It will be difficult to find a better bird's eye view of the Civil War, with greater accuracy, with more carefully integrated narrative or with better designed maps....Merits a place in every collection of Civil War history."
