Assuming a big enough table to accommodate this oversize volume (10x14"), readers are presented with narrative text and visuals depicting the significant battles and military campaigns as well as important social themes. The book contains a total of 200 maps—of terrain and troop movement as well as of themes tying the battlefield to the home front, including population, economic development, elections, transportation networks, and patterns of enlistment. Archival photos, a glossary, a selective bibliography, and an index support the text. Authors Steven E. Woodworth (history, Texas Christian U.) and Kenneth J. Winkle (history, U. of Nebraska) provide the narrative; Pulitzer Prize winning historian James M. McPherson provides introductory text for the five chronologically arranged sections.
