Journeys Through the Battlefields in the Wake of Conflict Vol 3
by Benson J. Lossing
One of the most popular historians in the years immediately following the American Civil War, Benson J. Lossing was virtually forgotten in the later 20th century ... until the reissue of his three-volume Pictorial Field Book. Lossing wrote from a relentlessly Unionist point of view, and his prose effectively conveys the sentiments Northerners felt at the end of the conflict. The hundreds of maps and illustrations, reminiscent of those in the 19th-century magazine Harper's Weekly, are a real highlight. The first book focuses almost exclusively on political affairs, although it does cover the siege of Fort Sumter and Bull Run; the second two volumes are full of military action. The Pictorial Field Book is no substitute for the more scholarly work of James M. McPherson, Bruce Catton, and Shelby Foote, but it provides a unique period feel that only an author who lived through the times can offer. For Civil War enthusiasts, it will hold genuine interest.

Shiloh 1862 : The Death of Innocence (Osprey Military Campaign Series : 54)
by Jim Arnold, Carl Smith.
The first major battle of the western theatre of the Civil War, Shiloh horrified the nation by showing the terrible price that would have to be paid to preserve the Union. On April 6, 1862, Confederate Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston caught Grant and Sherman by surprise and nearly drove them into the Tennessee River. Somehow, the Union force hung on, and the next day drove back the Rebel force.

Hurricane of Fire : The Union Assault on Fort Fisher
by Charles M., III Robinson
In December 1864 and January 1865, Federal forces launched the greatest amphibious assault the world had yet seen on the Confederate stronghold of Fort Fisher, near Wilmington, North Carolina. This was the last seaport available to the South--all of the others had been effectively shut down by the Union's tight naval blockade. The initial attack was a disaster; Fort Fisher, built mainly out of beach sand, appeared almost impregnable against a heavy naval bombardment. When troops finally landed, they were quickly repelled. A second attempt succeeded and arguably helped deliver one of the death blows to a quickly fading Confederacy.  John J. Miller -
