Much has been written of the infantry and the cavalry during the Civil War, but little attention has been paid the artillery. Through the battles of Chickamauga and Missionary Ridge in 1863 and the Atlanta Campaign of 1864 and with General Sherman?s forces on the famous March to the Sea, the acts of a courageous fighting group are vividly recounted... more...

Cavalry units from Midwestern states remain largely absent from Civil War literature, and what little has been written largely overlooks the individual men who served. The Fifth Illinois Cavalry has thus remained obscure despite participating in some of the most important campaigns in Arkansas and Mississippi. In this pioneering examination of that... more...

A longtime Special Forces officer with a Ph.D. in systems engineering presents a new perspective on one of the legendary campaigns of the Civil War, General William T. Sherman's invasion of Georgia.

The Union Navy played a vital role in winning the Civil War by blockading Confederate ports, cooperating with the Union Army in amphibious assaults, and controlling the Mississippi River and its tributaries.

Mr. Lincoln's Brown Water Navy: The Mississippi Squadron describes the Civil War as fought on the rivers of the West. The ironclads and gunboats protected army forces and convoyed much needed supplies to far-flung Federal forces. They patrolled thousands of miles of rivers and fought battles that were every bit as harrowing as land engagements.... more...

The Human Tradition in the Civil War and Reconstruction brings alive this decisive period in American history by taking the reader beyond the realm of generals, presidents, and the other towering figures of history and introducing fourteen individuals who represent the variety of people who made up the great mass of the nation in the middle of the... more...

The Civil War has historically been viewed somewhat simplistically as a battle between the North and the South. Southern historians have broadened this viewpoint by revealing the ?many Souths? that made up the Confederacy, but the ?North? has remained largely undifferentiated as a geopolitical term. In this welcome collection, seven Civil War scholars... more...

In the summer of 1863, General Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia advanced into Pennsylvania in a daring offensive to win the Civil War in a single campaign.

Fast ein Drittel aller Männer, die zwischen 1933 und 1945 geboren wurden, wuchsen kriegsbedingt ohne Vater auf. Anhand der sehr persönlichen Berichte in diesem Band werden die Folgen dieses Verlustes sichtbar: die Schwierigkeit, dem eigenen Leben deutliche Konturen zu geben, der Kampf um Selbstvertrauen und Entscheidungssicherheit. Häufig ist der abwesende... more...
