The Civil War was the bloodiest war in American history and a defining moment of the nineteenth century. In this concise and authoritative volume, Brian Holden Reid -- a leading expert on the subject -- reveals how industrialization and emerging methods of mass production gave birth to a new age of warfare, most dramatically represented in the unprecedented destruction and mass casualties of the American Civil War.

Detailed, chronological history of the strategic and operational dimensions of both the Northern and Southern campaigns Strengths and weaknesses of the opposing sides Fresh perspectives on the war's global context Culmination of the war, peace negotiations, and their ramifications for the future
