Professor of history Herman Hattaway has written this commentary of the Civil War, emphasizing the advances in military technology and their impact on the battlefield. The developments described range from the repeating rifle, armored battleships, land mines and various new types of cannons. Narrator Sean Pratt presents this information concisely, with an even stride that delineates the successes and failures of the battles fought. We hear the commanders on both sides recollecting with convincing voice military strategies that shaped the grim course of this war. B.J.L. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
