Summary
"A Great Civil War is a new interpretation of the events which continue to dominate the American imagination and identity nearly 150 years after the war's end. From Fort Sumter to the early, ill-organized clashes in the West and border states, to the naval encounters in the East, and on through the great and horrible battles whose names resound in American history - Shiloh, Corinth, Bull Run, Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Chickamauga, Antietam, Wilderness, Cold Harbor, Petersburg, Appomattox - all the great battles and many lesser engagements are described and analyzed. Every student of war will find new insights and interpretations at the strategic and tactical levels. There are firm judgments throughout of the leaders on both sides of the conflict." "A Great Civil War also analyzes the politics of both sides in relationship to battlefield situations. Weigley is unique in his ability to put all of the pieces on the board at once; the reader understands how war and politics (and individuals) interacted to produce the infinitely complex story that is the Civil War."--BOOK JACKET
