"Far and away the best investigation and analysis of the impact of the American Civil War on European military thought and military history."—Russell F. Weigley, author of The American Way of War

"A wonderfully original work."—Stephen B. Oates, author of Abraham Lincoln

"Practically in a class by itself among the more than 70,000 volumes published on the Civil War period."—James I. Robertson, Jr., author of General A. P. Hill: The Story of a Confederate Warrior

Author Bio: Jay Luvaas is professor of military history at the United States Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania, and is the author or editor of numerous books, including The Education of an Army: British Military Thought, 1815-1940.
