The Fighting Men of the Civil War
William C. Davis
The common soldier's experience of battle indeed his whole life under arms is the subject of Davis's fascinating account. Far removed from the politics of the war, from the great question of slavery, even from the movement of armies, for them in that moment when battle was joined, war was simply a personal matter of life and death. 84 color illustrations of soldiers and 182 historical photographs. 256 pages. Paperback.
