In this latest 2014 edition of the classic Battle Tactics of the Civil War, Paddy Griffith argues that, far from being the first 'modern' war, it was the last 'Napoleonic' war, and that none of the innovations of industrialized warfare had any significant effect on the outcome.

'Provocative, challenging and intelligent. Griffith's knowledge of military history in general from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries is so wide and deep that he is able to put the Civil War into a broader context more effectively and informatively than anyone else.' James M McPherson, author of Battle Cry for Freedom.

'Provides a fresh and provocative appraisal of the war... an essential read for anyone interested in the subject.' Military Illustrated.

'A prize. One gets a feeling of how nineteenth-century battle worked. I highly recommend it.' Paul A Koch, The Courier.
