Summary
A senior military historian presents an unflinching account of the human costs of the Civil War. Drawing extensively on letters and memoirs of individual soldiers, Adams assembles vivid accounts of the distress Confederate and Union soldiers faced daily: sickness, exhaustion, hunger, devastating injuries and makeshift hospitals where saws were often the medical instrument of choice. Providing a powerful counterpoint to Civil War glorification, Adams suggests Americans become fond of war out of ignorance of its terrors
