Battles of the Civil War, 1861-1865: From Fort Sumter to Petersburg
224 pp. "Synopsis From 1861 to 1865, the United States was locked in a bitter, bloody war that was different from any that had gone before. Improved artillery and musketry made the battles more lethal, while new technology made transportation and communications important elements of battlefield strategy. The end result was a total war in which the Union and the Confederacy fought for their very survival. Battles of the Civil War introduces 20 key battles from the conflict that shaped modern America. Beginning with the Confederate capture of Fort Sumter (April 1861), and concluding with the capitulation of Petersburg (April 1865), after an eight-month-long siege by Union forces, this book offers accessible and concise accounts of all the decisive battles of the Civil War.

With more than 200 color and black-and-white maps, artworks, and photographs illustrating the battles, leading players, and tactics of the era, Battles of the Civil War provides a useful introduction to some key battles of the most bloody conflict in the history of the United States. Designed for both the general reader and enthusiast, the book is an essential companion for anyone interested in North American milit...
