The editors of Time and Life really outdid themselves on this 28 volume set.

Calling on their unparalleled stock of images, they assembled a fabulous series of books that cover the war, the political scene, and all its associated content: uniforms, arms, music, day-in-the-life, and more.

Here are the volumes...

Sherman's March
War on the Frontier
Rebels Resurgent
Death in the Trenches
Gettysburg
The Road to Richmond
The Shenandoah in Flames
Twenty Million Yankees
The Fight for Chattanooga
The Road to Shiloh
The Struggle for Tennessee
Tenting Tonight
Pursuit to Appomattox
The Blockade
The Assassination
The Bloodiest Day
The Coastal War
Lee Takes Command
Spies, Scouts, and Raiders
The Battle for Atlanta
The Confederate Ordeal
War on the Mississippi
The Nation Reunited
Decoying the Yanks
First Blood
Brother Against Brother
The Killing Ground

I bought these for my husband's birthday and he loves them. They are so detailed and informative. He has other books on the Civil War but these have stories and information that he hasn't found in the others. They were a great addition to his historic collection and the books are in perfect condition.

Excellent and scholarly review of the American Civil War. Comprehensive and replete with pictures. Nicely bound with a descriptive picture on the outside covers. Published in the 1980s. Vol. 28 is the complete index for the series also containing interesting statistics and photographs. Same publishers who produced "The Seafarers" and "The Old West" both of which I own and have enjoyed reading.
