The American Civil War still, after more than a century and a quarter, elicits enormous interest from a myriad of enthusiasts--ranging from scholars to casually interested students, to hobbyists and "buffs," and to those who enjoy dressing in authentic costumes and using period equipment to "reenact." (from the first line)
Unique to books on the Civil War, this concise and informative introductory military history discusses how technological innovations changed the configuration of the battlefield and the very face of war. 27 photos. 4 maps.

Praise

"There is no other one-volume history of the Civil War that is so up-to-date in its author's mastery of current scholarship on the war, that so succinctly yet completel summarizes the military history of the war....Anything Herman Hattaway says on the Civil War has to be taken seriously." - Russell F. Weigley

Washington Times
"In a world awash in books about the war...it's dangerous to anoint any one as necessary for a complete library. But with 'Shades of Blue and Gray', Mr. Hattaway has produced a volume that is simultaneously informative and entertaining."

Kirkus Reviews
"Those searching for a clear, persuasive introduction to the way in which battles shaped new strategies and new idea of war could find no better or more compelling guide." 03/01/1997
