Críticas:

"A lucid narrative plus clear, easy-to-read maps that portray both strategic and tactical operations make a splendid combination in this valuable volume. It can be read cover to cover as a complete military history of the Civil War, or consulted as a reference work on specific campaigns and battles. It is a book that Civil War experts as well as novices will find indispensable."--James M. McPherson""Embattled Rebel: Jefferson Davis as Commander in Chief"" (07/30/2014)

"The American Civil War is of course intimately linked with the American landscape. Understanding that topography, and visualizing the movements of armies over it present a constant challenge even to seasoned readers. M. David Detweiler's "The Civil War: The Story of the War with Maps" presents a fresh and invaluable companion for anyone who wants to understand what happened whether reading in an armchair, or touring on the battlefield...The approach is innovative, and very effective."--William C. Davis""Crucible of Command: Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee"" (08/05/2014)

"Any reader--or historian!--who has yearned for a simple, comprehensible, vivid map to accompany the story of a military campaign, a battle, or a mere skirmish, need now look no further than David Detweiler's useful and highly attractive compilation. It is good to have a volume that combines an understanding of military movements of the period and accessibility to modern technology to create understandable cartography of the scenes."--Harold Holzer"Roger Hertog Fellow, New-York Historical Society" (08/03/2014)

"Detweiler is perhaps best known for his interesting book "Gettysburg, The Story of the Battle with Maps."..He is back with a similar effort covering the entire Civil War. He uses the same style of maps and text to tell the key events of the war, beginning with 'Bloody Kansas' and continuing through the final days of the Appomattox Campaign and the assassination of Lincoln...The maps (more than a hundred of them!) are all in full color and useful in giving a sense of the grand tactical situation as the campaigns and battles play out. The accompanying prose is succinct in describing the actions of the opposing armies and their principle commanders."--Scott Minqus"yorkblog.com/cannonball" (11/28/2014)

Descripción Stackpole Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 277 x 213 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. For readers addicted to histories or novels about the Civil War, a common challenge is the lack of adequate maps. This excellent volume satisfies that need, once and for all: It s the clearest, fullest collection of strategic and tactical maps available, a fine volume on its own and an indispensable aid to understanding many another book. Few works truly are must-haves for a Civil War collection, but this one s essential. --Ralph Peters, author of Cain at Gettysburg and Hell or Richmond The Civil War: The Story of the War with Maps combines the colorful, detailed maps of an atlas with the vivid storytelling of the best narratives to piece together the nation-spanning jigsaw puzzle of the American Civil War. See the conflict develop from a few small armies into total war engulfing the whole South.The campaigns and battles are all here, with maps zooming in on the maneuvering and attacking armies: Bull Run, Shiloh, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chickamauga, Chattanooga, the Wilderness, Atlanta, and more.The nationwide perspective--absent from so many other books and shown here on full-page maps--connects these dots into a cohesive story of the entire war, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mississippi River, from Pennsylvania to the Gulf of Mexico. Distilling events into their essentials, the text focuses on the military history of the conflict and its cast of colorful commanders--Lee, Grant, Sherman, McClellan, and Stonewall Jackson.Captures all the war s intensity and human drama, its epic sweep from Sumter to Appomattox. The result is a unique book that educates, enlightens, and entertains. An ideal introduction for newcomers, refresher for buffs, and companion to other books during the war s 150th anniversary and beyond. Nº de ref. de la librería ANB9780811714495
