This is an auction for THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR by Brian Holden Reid.

"It remains the bloodiest war of all time. In THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR, Brian Holden Reid examines the impact that the industrial revolution had on this war, and before that the Crimean War. The social and political changes wrought by the Industrial Revolution transformed everything from the balance of power between nations to arms manufacturing to battlefield tactics and strategy. Using three wars as examples -- most dramatically the American Civil War -- trace the development of land fighting and the effects of higher command during this period of tumultuous technological change. Unlike histories that downplay the connection between the outcome in the United States and the conflicts in Europe, this one reveals their interconnection. THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR contains 125 colour and black-and-white illustrations as well as 20 maps that show the strategies and results of the first modern war."
