American Civil War by Stephen D. Engle

Book Description

The United States saw long-simmering sectional tensions erupt into fighting at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, in April 1861, beginning what would become the most cataclysmic military struggle in the western world between Waterloo and the First World War. This book, with a new foreword by Professor James McPherson, traces the course of the war in both Eastern and Western theatres, looking at strategic, geographical and logistic factors as well as the soldiers, officers, and civilians who were caught up in the conflict. During the four years of war at least 620,000 soldiers and sailors died in bloody fighting at more than 10,000 recorded battles, engagements and skirmishes.

In this rich study of Union governors and their role in the US Civil War, Stephen D. Engle examines how these politicians were pivotal in securing victory.

American Civil War by Stephen D. Engle American Civil War, Hardback (January 2001)

This is an accessible guide to the American civil war with an emphasis on the people who fought and the impact on the world at large. Eyewitness accounts are used to give a "soldier's eye view" of the conflict and expose the reality of the battlefield.

Yankee Dutchman by Stephen D. Engle Yankee Dutchman, Paperback (October 1999)

This biography offers a portrait of the enigmatic leader Franz Sigel. It shows him to be a disciplined, self-sacrificing idealist who sparked pride among his fellow emigres, aroused controversy among Americans, and perhaps enjoyed more admiration than other Civil War figures.
