Battles of the American Civil War introduces 20 key battles from a conflict that lay waste the United States for four bloody years. Beginning with the Confederate capture of Fort Sumter (April 1861), and concluding with the capitulation of Petersburg, Virginia (April 1865), after an eight-month long siege to Union forces, this book offers accessible and concise accounts of all the decisive battles of the American Civil War. Each battle includes a contextual introduction of the campaign, a concise description of the action, and an analysis of the aftermath. A specially-commissioned, colour map illustrating the dispositions and movement of forces brings the subject to life and helps the reader to grasp – at a glance – the development of the battle. With more than 200 colour and black-and-white maps, artworks, and photographs illustrating the battles, leading players, and tactics of the era, Battles of the American Civil War provides a useful and accessible introduction to some key battles of the most bloody conflict in the history of the United States.
