Battles and Leaders of the Civil War (4 Volume Set)

Book Battles and Leaders of the Civil War (4 Volume Set)

Justifiably lauded by generations of Civil War readers and not a few historians, this 'first-person' view of the war from many of the direct participants is as fundamental to understanding the war as the Official Records, and far more readable. The one-volume condensed version leaves a staggering amount of great material out; reading or consulting the full version is much more rewarding. Slightly edited from the 'Century' Magazine series on the war, whose editors strove mightily to address multiple viewpoints; the reader can judge how well they succeeded.
