Kurzbeschreibung

20. Oktober 2009 National Geographic
In this one-of-a-kind atlas, scores of archival maps and dozens of newly created maps trace the battles, political turmoil, and great themes of America’s most violent and pivotal clash of arms. From the Antebellum South to Fort Sumter, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the fitful peace of Reconstruction, National Geographic’s Atlas of the Civil War displays eye-opening maps—and a gripping, self-contained story—on every spread.

Eighty-five rare period maps, many seen here for the first time, offer the cartographic history of a land at war with itself: from 19th-century campaign maps surveying whole regions and strategies to vintage battlefield charts used by Union and Confederate generals alike, along with commercial maps produced for a news-hungry public, and comprehensive Theater of War maps. In 35 innovative views created especially for this book, the key moments of major battles are pinpointed by National Geographic’s award-winning cartographers using satellite data to render the terrain with astonishing detail.

In addition, more than 320 documentary photographs, battlefield sketches, paintings, and artifacts bear eyewitness testimony to the war, history’s first to be widely captured on film.

5.0 von 5 Sternen big, handsome coffee table book to be hefty both in its weight and its contents 26. Dezember 2009
Von Rea Andrew Redd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Atlas of the Civil War: A Complete Guide to the Tactics and Terrain of Battle </em> by Stephen Hyslop, Neil Kagan, and Harris Andrews, National Geographic Incorporated, 255 pages, additional readings, index, 2009, $40.00

Comprehensive is a word of which CWL is suspicious. <em>National Geographic's Atlas of the Civil War A Comprehensive Guide to the Tactics and Terrain of Battle</em> is pretty close to comprehensive though.

Organized as a chronological account with eighty-five rare period maps, this atlas offers the map maker's history of the American Civil War. Campaign maps surveying whole regions and strategies, contemporary battlefield charts used by Union and Confederate generals, commercial maps produced for a newspapers are the majority of the maps in the atlas. The key moments of major battles are pinpointed by National Geographic's cartographers using satellite data to render the terrain with astonishing detail in 35 maps created for the atlas.

In addition, there are over 300 documentary photographs, battlefield sketches, paintings, and artifacts bear eyewitness testimony to the war, history's first to be widely captured by photography. Users of William J. Miller's <em>Great Maps of the Civil War: Pivotal Battles and Campaigns</em>, Earl McElfresh's <em>Mapping For Stonewall</em> and <em>Maps and Mapmakers of the Civil War</em>, the Atlas to the Official Records, the West Point Atlas of the Civil War, and the numerous online map collections of universities and libraries will be content with the depth and clarity of reproductions in this atlas. Those coming to Civil War era maps and map making for the first and second time could hardly do better that the National Geographic's atlas. Those looking for a large format nearly comprehensive book on the military aspects of the war will find in this big, handsome coffee table book to be hefty both in its weight and its contents.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just what I wanted.. 5. Oktober 2011
Von Bill Kelso - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I was looking for a book that would have maps for battles I'm reading about in other historys (i.e., Shelby Foote's 3-volume, The Civil War, A Narrative). I am not that interested in period maps, but I'm not opposed to them either. This book exceeded my expectations because it has both period and modern maps AND it has nutshell descriptions of the historical context of each major battle plus fairly detailed descriptions of the battles themselves. So, while not as detailed as Foote on individual battles or the cast of characters involved, this book does an excellent job of putting each major battle into context, describing how the battle unfolded, who was involved, and why the battle was important. After you read the first two volumes of Foote, some of the references to earlier battles become a little hazy. All you need to do when that happens is open this book and refresh your recollection. As I said, this book was exactly what I was hoping it would be - plus a little bit more. The only slight downside is the dust jacket. To be honest, I'm afraid I'll rip or mar it. But I guess that's what dust jackets are for. Would definitely recommend this one. I'd buy it again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A beautiful book! 1. Dezember 2010
Von tomster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Wonderful period maps, photos and text on all the main battles of the ACW. a very pretty and nice coffee top book that summarises all the key facts. The main part is the maps of the battles. There is a nice section at the start which reviews the role of cartographers in the ACW and how important they were in the battles.

I feel like putting gloves on when I look at the book it is so nice!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good info - poor graphics 5. Dezember 2009
Von Edward Rosen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
If you're a Civil War buff, student, teacher this book is a must - BUT many of the graphics, trying to look "of the period" are a bit obscure. The maps from the Natinal Geographic are better. Some of the "battles" were a bit more than skirmishes; still people died, were wounded and subsequent battles were often determined by these skirmishes.
To understand the war, you must have a fair knowledge of "the west" i.e. TN LA etc. This book does a good job with that.
The VA peninsula campaigns and Gettysburg are well described and fairly easy to follow
