Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Whether a novice or an expert on the Civil War, readers will find This Terrible War to be a well-designed and fully developed book, and a powerful tool in learning about the Civil War and its foreground and aftermath. The book provides an analysis of the United States in the time leading up to the war—the slavery debate, the differences between North and South, the economic and social climate of the country—and moves into the war itself, presenting stories of both common soldiers and powerful military figures. The authors also trace the impact and eventual abolition of slavery, examining the role of African-Americans during the war. They conclude that the victory of the North resulted from superior resources and manpower, but also examine other contributing factors—providing a well-rounded, interesting and thorough analysis. The final section of the book describes the aftermath of the war, and the Epilogue examines how Americans have remembered the Civil War in later years. Ideal for anyone interested in the United States Civil War or US military history in general.

Format: Paperback
Please be advised the hardcover edition of this book does not contain the primary source documents, which unfortunately for me my professor is using for the class. I already bought the hardcover from Amazon and now I have to buy a paperback edition to fulfill the requirements for the course. There is a big difference in a hardcover edition with 435 pages(but my hardcover has 416??) and a paperback with over 500.

I suggest you buy the paperback if you are using it for a class because the documents are important to have and integral to the study of history anyway.

It's a textbook what can I say, the school requires it so I bought it. Reasonable price but not great.
