This one-volume history on the Civil War brings the events, figures, and battles of monumental conflict vividly to life. Absorbing details of military campaigns, battlefield strategies, and personalities revealed in an audacious style that carries readers breathlessly along from the day of Lincoln's inauguration to Lee's surrender at Appomattox Court House. [Source: Goodreads.com]

“The present one-volume history of the war is written for the man-in-the-street who, perhaps justifiably, has not the time to follow out the details of controversies as to the exact sequence of events, especially in some of the battles. It is an effort to follow the main currents of fact and emotion during the war; to include practically everything that contributed to the final result and to omit nearly everything else.” [From Author’s Foreword]

Richly illustrated by distinguished artist Merritt Cuttler with over 40 maps and illustrations.
