From Library Journal:

Wars may be about territory, but terrain establishes the parameters of operations. Few conflicts illustrate this more clearly than the American Civil War. Macdonald, author of two earlier works with similar formats ( Great Battlefields of the World and Great Battles of World War II, both just released in paperback) has selected 17 crucial Civil War engagements and applied computer mapping to their geography. The field is presented in three-dimensional, computer-generated landscape models. Principal troop movements are marked to show the effects of ground on the action. The cartography is accompanied by an intelligent text, clear graphs of force and loss ratios, and well-chosen illustrations. This unique Civil War atlas is valuable, if not indispensable, for library collections. Dennis E. Showalter, Colorado Coll., Colorado Springs
