Who were the greatest commanders of the American Civil War, and what made them the greatest? In Great Commanders Head to Head: The Civil War, the best commanders of both sides are pitted against each other, defining their strengths and weaknesses. The book then also examines a decisive battle between each pair of adversaries, highlighting the decisions made and why the battle was won. Each battle includes a contextual introduction, a 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 grasp the course of each battle.

Featuring full-colour illustrations, paintings and photographs alongside the battle maps, Great Commanders Head to Head: The Civil War is a fascinating comparison of the greatest Confederate and Union military leaders.
