The War for the Union : The Organized War, 1863-1864

The War for the Union : The Organized War, 1863-1864


In The Organized War: 1863-1864, Allan Nevins continues his definitive history of the American Civil War and his own most important contribution to historical studies. This overview of our national history from Fort Sumter through Appomattox and the death of Abraham Lincoln takes a rightful place among the classics accounts of the war that tore America apart.The present volume, complete in itself, opens with a survey of the condition of the nation midway through the warÐa balance-sheet of the strengths of the opposing armiesÐbut soon we stand outside Vicksburg as, after several false starts, Grant closes in around that city and prepares to seize control of the Mississippi River and cut the Confederacy in two. Coincident with these mighty operations, we are shown the fumbling and uncertainty that followed the Union defeat at Chancellorsville and the eventual conflict at Gettysburg, the high tide of the Confederacy in one sense and its doom in another. Allan Nevins won the National Book Award for The Organized War: 1863-1864 and The Organized War to Victory: 1864-1865, the succeeding volume in The War for the Union.All four volumes of the War for the Union are currently available from Konecky & Konecky.
