BBC History Classic Stories: The American Civil War Story£9.99
From the makers of BBC History comes the magazine ‘The American Civil War Story’ from the Classic Stories collection bringing you the causes, key events and legacy of this landmark conflict, as told by the world’s leading experts!
The magazine combines a group of leading American and British historians to tell the story of a bitter and bloody battle that divided North and South, the American Civil War was a landmark conflict that continues to loom large in history, not only in the United States, but also the world at large, in a fresh, compelling manner.
The American Civil War Story will send you on a road of discovery covering the key events and personalities that shaped the course of the war and get a feel for what it was like to be a foreign mercenary, a southern widow or a wounded veteran during these turbulent years.
The special edition also explores how religious divisions inspired the conflict; investigates the importance of naval power; and highlights women’s many varied wartime roles, including as nurses, soldiers and spies. It takes an in-depth look at the battle of Gettysburg and offers up some compelling explanations as to why people on both sides of the divide decided to take up arms.
Elsewhere, we highlight key battle sites and examine the lasting legacy of the landmark conflict, asking how Americans managed to rebuild their nation in the aftermath of catastrophe.
