Voices of the Civil Warby Richard Wheeler, Bruce Catton (Foreword by)
This is the Civil War the way it really was for
Piercing eyewitness accounts of the greatest - and most terrible - experience in the nation's history describe the Civil War on all fronts and through all the battles. Wheeler has captured the voices from the letters and journals of generals, common soldiers and ordinary civilians, all consumed by the monstrous events.
This is the Civil War the way it really was for a generation of Americans, who went into it with unbelievable innocence and emerged knowing its horrifying magnitude.
