The Civil War was the defining event in American history.
The Civil War 100 uses a truly novel approach to analyze the respective importance of the events, leaders and battles of America's most important war.

"Across this easily accessible reference, readers meet not
only such icons as Lincoln and Lee, but also chronic fumblers
whose tarnished reputations have most often sunk beneath
the notice of the endless waves of Civil War histories...A
recommended reference for the aficionado and the uninitiated
alike. Those well-versed in Civil War lore will enjoy the
intellectual challenge of supporting or debunking Lanning's
rankings, while the merely curious will be exposed to an
insightful world of detail that they may have otherwise
missed." -ForeWord Magazine

From the Inside Flap:

The Civil War has a hold on the American mind unequaled by any other eventóand for good reason: it is, after all, the most bloody and brutal war in which America has ever been involved. Three million fought and six hundred thousand died.

But the war was so much more than that: it was a cultural, technological and political transformation on a scale that today is hard to imagine. Many intersecting causes and crucial events led up to the war and ultimately influenced its outcome. Brilliant politicians and soldiers on both sides played instrumental roles, on the battlefield and off.

Which causes were the most important? Which events most influenced the warís outcome? Which soldiers and generals truly deserve to be remembered as legends, and which actually had exaggerated roles? For armchair historians and Civil War buffs alike, The Civil War 100 answers these questions and many more.

Michael Lee Lanning retired as a Lieutenant Colonel from the U.S. Army after more than twenty years of service. He is a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War, where he served as an infantry platoon leader and company commander. Lanning has written fifteen books on military history, including The Battle 100: The Stories Behind Historyís Most Influential Battles.

From the Back Cover:
