Book Description: Knopf/BOMC. 1 Cloth(s), 2009. hard. Book Condition: New. Here the late British historian John Keegan—former senior lecturer in military history at the Royal Military Academy and author of The First World War, The Face of Battle, and The Second World War—approached the Civil War a bit differently than American historians. Why did the fighting persist for four years among such mismatched combatants, he wonders, and why were there so few decisive battles? Here Keegan reveals the war's hidden shape as a consequence of leadership, the evolution of strategic logic, and American topography, which he argues presented a battle space of complexity and challenges virtually unmatched before or since."[The author's approach] pays off in far-ranging discussions of broader features: the North's strategic challenge in trying to subdue a vast Confederacy ringed by formidable natural obstacles and lacking in significant military targets; the importance of generalship; the unusual frequency of bloody yet indecisive battles; and the fierceness with which soldiers fought their countrymen for largely ideological motives. Keegan soars above the conflict to delineate its contours, occasionally swooping low to expand on a telling detail or a moment of valor or pathos. Keegan's elegant prose and breadth of learning make this a stimulating, if idiosyncratic, interpretation of the war."—Publishers Weekly 396. Bookseller Inventory # 38056
