  • Year of Desperate Struggleby Monte Akers

    Casemate 2015; US$ 18.99

    By the summer of 1863, following Chancellorsville, it was clear to everyone on both sides of the Civil War that the Army of Northern Virginia was the most formidable force Americans had ever put in the field.

  • Texas Dividedby James Marten

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    The Civil War hardly scratched the Confederate state of Texas.
