Lethal Glory Summary


Lethal Glory: Dramatic Defeats of the Civil War by Philip Katcher

What makes a battle a disaster for "both

sides? 15 examples, culled from Civil War annals, provide a wrenching answer to that question. These engagements saw some of the largest losses of life during the conflict. . .all to very little effect. Case histories include both the war's first action at Fort Sumter, the fierce fight at Fort Stedman, and Lee's last stand. Eyewitness accounts and detailed analysis make these tragic tales unforgettable. 240 pages, 37 b/w illus., 6 x 9.
