A practical guide to what took place at the great battlefields of the Civil War and how to tour them now, either on foot or by car, with details on the museums, nearby attractions and activities. Each battle is brought to life, along with the personalities of the men who fought and died there. Covers the battles of Manassas, Shiloh, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, Vicksburg and more. "About as good as battlefield guidebooks get, which is very good indeed. (The Bergen Record) It is odd to think of a guide to battlefields presented as walking tours. But this one is, and it works. This is because the book is set up as "You Are There" stories, with its soldiers presented as real people, not war machines. (NY Daily News) Takes you to 12 battlefields from the perspective of the generals who shaped each battle. Instead of dry, academic reporting, Howard vividly captures the spirit of the War in such lively prose that you don't have to be a buff to relive these desperate times."
