Provocative, challenging and intelligent. Griffith's knowledge of military history in general from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries is so wide and deep that he is able to put the Civil War into a broader context more effectively and informatively than anyone else.'
Provides a fresh and provocative appraisal of the war ... an essential read for anyone interested in the subject.
A prize. One gets a feeling of how nineteenth-century battle worked. I highly recommend it.
