Format: Paperback
This is one of the best Civil War books I have come across in a while. I used it as a reference for wargaming the Civil War. It was very useful in seeing how armies marched and fought during that period as well as the logistical requirements for battle.
The book is filled with great line drawings depicting the various aspects of the Civil War battlefield including march order, medical treatment, spies,fire fights and more.

This soft cover book is more like a sophisticated comic book and is a great overview of the period. I would say this work is an inch deep, but a mile wide and lacks great detail, but covers every important aspect of Civil War Battle.
I liked it so much I bought two copies, as I misplaced my first one and quickly ordered another.
