Better read for a Civil War expert. ( )

This was an enjoyable book. Another in Tsouras' (unconnected) series of books on what might have been. In this case it was a collection of 10 or 12 essays by historians familiar with the American Civil War. I must say I learned a lot about the conditions and situations faced by the South during the war. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Could the South have won the Civil War? Based on real battles, actions, and characters, ten scenarios have been carefully constructed to reveal how at points of decision a different choice or minor incident could have set in motion an entirely new train of events. What if Sherman was stalled outside Atlanta, or Lincoln lost the crucial 1864 election? Or if Stuart's Cavalry at Gettysburg arrived in time to give Lee the freedom of operation he lacked in reality? These and many more scenarios are played out against the dramatic and colorful backdrop of this critical and bloody era of American history. Based on a series of "what ifs" posed by leading military historians, this new speculative history reconstructs moments during the American Civil War that could conceivably have altered the entire course of the war and led to a Confederate victory.--From publisher description.… (more)
