Overview

Join the editors of TIME to observe the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War in a richly illustrated chronicle of the confl ict that changed America. It's an immense subject-a battle between freedom and slavery, waged across the breadth of the still-expanding nation over a period of four years-and TIME has created an oversized volume to tell the story in the grand style it deserves.

To bring the tale to life, the book focuses on little-seen photographs and original artifacts from the period: sketches from soldier's diaries, unusual and rare military and political memorabilia. And it brings us face-to-face with those who lived through the period, presenting scores of excerpts from the letters and diaries of soldiers, offi cers and statesmen. Yet the book also captures the full sweep of the war, telling the tale in chronological fashion, as the war evolves from a quiet beginning to become a mammoth struggle that consumed the divided nation. Here are the great generals: Ulysses S. Grant, Robert E. Lee and "Stonewall" Jackson. Here are the great battles, from Bull Run and Antietam to Gettysburg and Shiloh. Here are the latest discoveries and analysis by scholars of the conflict. And here are fascinating, informative graphics that reveal the war in fresh, clarifying detail. Here is a larger-than-life conflict, reported and illuminated in a larger-than-life oversized edition from TIME.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This TIME-branded sesquicentennial coffee-table book is handsome, but there's not enough going on inside. The focus is resolutely old-fashioned: the Civil War as a military conflict, with little reference to social or moral contexts. "Great generals" receive individual attention, either via extensive profiles or in captioned images within particular battle chapters. The publisher claims the book has the "latest discoveries and analysis by scholars of the conflict," but the only named author to be found is military novelist Jeff Shaara, whose introduction is a fictional "mile in the shoes of an unknown warrior." Meanwhile, a "Gallery" chapter subtitled "A Soldier's Life" presents more images of officers than of soldiers, as if the editors were unaware of the distinction. Nonetheless, the images (mostly from the Library of Congress) are the best part of the book, especially hand-tinted pen-and-ink maps created after particular sieges and engagements, beautifully combining topographic, military, and cadastral detail. The historical photographs, many familiar ones, are striking and stirring. VERDICT An optional purchase for public libraries and readers content with old-fashioned history minus complicating context or bibliography. LC's own digital record of American history in its American Memory Project, freely available online, offers a wealth of this material.—Margaret Heilbrun, Library Journal
