Overview


Great battles and famous commanders dominated the military history of the Civil War in the Eastern Theater during the period 1863-1865. This book includes revealing details of the clash at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the costliest battle ever waged in the Western Hemisphere, but, contrary to common belief, puts forward the theory that it was not a great turning point in the war. This book also examines the events that led to Robert E Lee accepting generous terms of surrender from Ulysses S Grant, bringing the war in Virginia to a close. A fascinating look at this crucial point in the American Civil War.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Osprey should be commended for its publishing efforts here. The book has crisp, clear illustrations printed on glossy pages. The maps are like-wise clear and also in color, making it easy to conceptualize the troop movements described in the text, and with just enough detail fitting for this general survey... should appeal to the general reader desirous of a quick, yet comprehensive, treatment that may well stimulate further study." -Frank Piatek, Civil War News
