    "Don Troiani probably knows more about how Civil War soldiers looked and were equipped than anyone else since the veterans themselves. His paintings are unparalleled in evoking Civil War military culture-both on the battlefield and in camp." --Gary W. Gallagher, author of The Confederate War

    "Don Troiani is unsurpassed at recreating, with absolute fidelity, the decisive moments of great battles." --Stephen W. Sears, author of Chancellorsville

    In the world of historical painting, Don Troiani stands alone, universally acclaimed for the accuracy, drama, and sensitivity of his depictions of America's past. His Civil War paintings and limited edition prints hang in the finest collections in the country and are noted internationally as well. Don Troiani's Civil War-the first collection of his Civil War art to appear in book form-is a chronological depiction of every face of the war. His most famous and popular works-most of which are in private collections and unavailable for viewing-are all represented here; many rarer pieces, which are not even available in print form, are also included.

  • Review: Although he has been painting the War Between the States since 1980, Don Troiani's Civil War is the first book to collect this historical artist's work in one volume. Troiani is at his best in the battle paintings--his attention to detail and insistence on historical accuracy help him capture the valor and confusion of combat--but the book includes more bucolic depictions of camp life, as well. Brian Pohanka's accompanying text illuminates the stories behind the paintings. For example, he describes a famous episode from Second Manassas where Confederate soldiers ran out of bullets during a Union assault; the beleaguered Rebels resorted to throwing rocks at the Union lines. Troiani captures this desperate action magnificently. Because the narrative focuses on these small stories, it sometimes misses the big picture; so while the text and paintings are presented in chronological order from 1861 to 1865, it makes for only a so-so recounting of the war overall. But this is not a book you read so much as experience. --Thomas Prowell
