Was it really a Civil War? Textbooks, popular history books, and documentary films, among others, have established that myth in in the collective consciousness of the American people. Yet the war of 1861-1865 was no more an effort to overthrow the U.S. government than the American War of Independence was a fight to topple King George and Parliament. Now, finally, comes the true story of the War Between the States, in one captivating, full color, 700-page volume. With more than 530 illustrations, nearly 100 biographical sketches, and the literary flair of the novelist that he is, John J. Dwyer has transformed the tedious, uninspiring textbook rendering of the Civil War into what it should be: America's greatest and most terrible epic.
