If you are interested in the tools and technologies of the Civil War, and essentially how the armies and navies were outfitted, clothed, fed, sheltered, and cared for when wounded or in death--this book is for you. In addition, you will come away with a better understanding of how battles were won or lost, as well as the war itself.
Just a sampling of the details and illustrations provided for land and water applications: long arms, hand guns, artillery, munitions, clothing and footwear, accoutrements, saddles, flags, formations and staffs, shelters, ships and boats of all kind, mines and various special and unique weapons, balloons, railroads, forts and fortifications, and special sections covering the Quartermaster Corps, Medical Departments, Signal Corps, and the engineers on both sides. Excellent detailed drawings, including cut-aways and the inner workings and design of weapons, ammunition, ships of war, etc. are provided.
