9780060851200: The Civil War and the Wars of the Nineteenth Century (Smithsonian History of Warfare)

The Civil War was the bloodiest war in American history and a defining moment of the nineteenth century. In this concise and authoritative volume, Brian Holden Reid -- a leading expert on the subject -- reveals how industrialization and emerging methods of mass production gave birth to a new age of warfare, most dramatically represented in the unprecedented destruction and mass casualties of the American Civil War.

  • Detailed, chronological history of the strategic and operational dimensions of both the Northern and Southern campaigns
  • Strengths and weaknesses of the opposing sides
  • Fresh perspectives on the war's global context
  • Culmination of the war, peace negotiations, and their ramifications for the future
