Includes Civil War Map and Illustrations Pack – 224 battle plans, campaign maps, and detailed analyses of actions spanning the entire period of hostilities. An excellent account of the first two years of the American Civil War, Major Redway sifts through the wealth of material available to give a digestible interpretation of the events. It was during these two years that the attritional nature of the War was realised and both belligerents realised that the hostilities would be both long and bloody. In the Eastern Theatre, from the Battle of Bull Run, notable for the inexperience of the troops and the emergence of Thomas Jackson as a leader of the first order who gained his nickname “Stonewall” by his inspiring performance, to the Peninsula Campaign which forced the Union troops back from their attempt to assault Richmond. In the west, much blood was spilt on both sides, but the fighting was inconclusive and hardly decisive; Ulysses S. Grant was gaining much experience and profited by planning a number of minor victories. This book is part of the Special Campaigns series produced around the turn of the 20th century by serving or recently retired British and Indian Army officers. They were intended principally for use by British officers seeking a wider knowledge of military history. Author — Major George William Redway (1859-1934) – 224 additional maps have been added.
