Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0517467798, Hardcover)THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR taken from Volume IV of Churchill's acclaimed A HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH- SPEAKING PEOPLES, brings us up to the turn of the century. But Churchill's superb account of the American Civil War stands on its own.
Churchill's understanding of the Civil War rivals that of our American scholars. From the first shot fired on Ft. Sumter to Lee's surrender at Appomattox, Churchill paints a picture of the time in his own elegant style and with his own unique perspective.
"Churchill's historical vision places the Civil War in the context of its time and reveals it for the inevitable resolution that it was." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)

Accompanied by actual photographs of the period, this account of the Civil War by Britain's great statesman, is both brief and immensely readable.
