From the PublisherIn this book, the author covers the Civil War’s eastern theater from 1861-65 and leads you through a progressive linage of the fighting infantryman on both sides under the, quoting the book, “appalling realities of warfare in the industrial age.” You’ll follow the infantryman in the key battles such as First Bull Run/Manassas, “The Bloody Angle” Gettysburg, and Chaffin’s Farm/New Market Heights. The later battle sets focus on African American troops fighting for the union. The book further discusses in-depth the tactics and strategies used by both sides. The evolution of uniforms worn by the troops is an interesting story in itself and will surely aid the purist modeler. The diorama modeler will appreciate the interesting period b&w photographs, plus it’s packed with a wide range of colorful paintings and maps. --IPMS/USA
