This is the book that describes 26 key battles and campaigns of the Civil War using full-color tactical battlefield maps. Ten battles—including Shiloh, Gettysburg, and Petersburg—include a removable 18" x 11 3/4" fold-out map that depicts unit dispositions ranging from brigade to army group, their commanders, and a timeline of advances and retreats. Providing easy-to-follow continuity using succinct battle narratives, the book begins with First Manassas (First Battle of Bull Run), where then Confederate Colonel Thomas J. Jackson earned his famous moniker, and ends with the Appomattox Campaign that culminated in the surrender of Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. Original photography and sidebar quotes from both sides capture the sweeping magnitude of our nation's deadliest conflict. 62 pages. Hardcover. 11 1/2" L x 10" W x 1" D. (2 lb.)
