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.

I first obtained a copy of this book in its smaller format, as packaged with the 1995 PC strategy game 'The Civil War' by Empire Interactive, and quickly fell in love with the written format employed by Paddy Griffith and fantastic illustrations of Peter Dennis.

The book is quite short for the amount of information it covers, but does a great job at conveying a lot of critical information in a very accessible and enjoyable way. Tons of information regarding tactics, equipment, theaters of war, etc, are all covered in considerable detail, and the illustrations help to bring this information to life and give readers an excellent visual grasp of the topics covered.

In all, I would highly recommend this as a fantastic casual civil war reference, and even more so when considering the quality of Dennis' illustrations contained throughout. Definitely deserves a place on any Civil War history buff's bookshelf!
