American victory, American defeat / James M. McPherson -- Military means, political ends : strategy / Archer Jones -- "Upon their success hang momentous interests" : generals / Gary W. Gallagher -- The perseverance of the soldiers / Reid Mitchell -- Black glory : the African-American role in union victory / Joseph T. Glatthaar.
Five major historians return to the battlefield to explain the South's defeat. Provocatively argued and engagingly written, this work rejects the notion that the Union victory was inevitable and shows the importance of the commanders, strategies, and victories at key moments.
