Author: Allan Nevins
Details: With The Organized War to Victory: 1864-1865, Allan Nevins completes his masterly study of the American Civil War. The qualities of clarity, absolute command of the sources, and full recognition of the drama inherent in the theme, which have distinguished the previous volumes can all be found here as well. And there is something more: a communication without sentimentality of the heartbreak of this national tragedy for the victors as well as the vanquished. ("He seemed," wrote one observer of President Lincoln, "to be in mourning for all the dead of all the endless battles.") Nevins provides the reader with an analysis of the social and economic effects of the conflict which is outstanding for wisdom and depth.Allan Nevins won the National Book Award for The Organized War to Victory: 1864-1865 and The Organized War: 1863-1864, the preceding volume in The War for the Union.All four volumes of the War for the Union are currently available from Konecky & Konecky.
