The Fighting Men of the Civil Warby William C. Davis, Russ A. Pritchard
Shifting the focus from/i>
The Fighting Men of the Civil War provide us with perhaps the clearest view possible of those soldiers of another age, and in doing so allows us to go some way toward sharing with them America's terrible civil conflict. We can hardly hope to understand a nation at war with itself if we know nothing of the people who did the fighting.
Shifting the focus from the officers to the men in the ranks, Davis shows readers the common soldier's Civil War, including basic training, life in the camps and on the march, and the experience of combat, imprisonment, and sickness. 266 photos & illustrations, 84 in color.
