Review quote

"The Civil War made America one nation. World War II made that nation a global power. Both had profound influence on the national character. Here, eleven notable historians compare the causes, conduct, and results of the two wars that Don Fehrenbacher calls 'along with the Revolution and the Constitutional founding, the major defining events in American history."--Tom Wicker, former New York Times columnist and author, JFK and LBJ: The Influence of Power upon Politics and One of Us: Richard Nixon and the American Dream"This collection of essays on diverse topics provides an interesting commentary on the two most bloody and socially transformative events in American history....The authors are all-star history talents, but the lesser known are no less adroit in commanding their material....As interpretive views, this volume best sits atop expansive collections of America's most written-and read-about wars."--Booklistshow more
