Description Information

The first military conflict to use iron-clad gunboats, metallic cartridges, and submarines, the Civil War also introduced such inventions as the telegraph and the military balloon.  This comprehensive reference brings a fresh perspective to wartime victories and defeat, with vivid descriptions of how the war was fought and what materiel was available to armies and navies of the Union and the Confederacy. 

With hundreds of the author's drawings, Jack Coggin's remarkable encyclopedia offers a new view on how military resources decided the outcome not only of battles, but of the war as well.  The text includes on-the-scene comments by Union and Confederate soldiers about equipment and camp life in general.
