about this book

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom comes an exceptional and highly original Civil War analysis. McPherson draws on the letters and diaries of nearly one thousand Union and Confederate soldiers, giving voice to the very men who risked their lives in the conflict, in order to examine what motivated each soldier to fight. "The best one-volume history of the Civil War."—The New York Times Book Review
