From the publisher: " "The final volume of Bruce Catton's monumental Centennial History of the Civil War traces the war from Fredericksburg through the succeeding grim and relentless campaigns to a Courthouse at Appomattox and the death of Lincoln. This is an eloquent study of the bitterest years of the war when death slashed the country with a brutality unparalleled in the history of the United States. Through the kaleidoscopic tone and temper of the struggle, two men, different in stature, but similar in dedication to their awesome tasks, grappled with the burden of being leaders both in politics and war. In the north Lincoln remained resolute in the belief that a house divided against itself could not stand. His determination and uncanny vision of the destiny of the country and its people far transcended the plaguing tensions, fears, and frustrations of his cabinet and Congress. Mr. Lincoln's use of vast resources is brilliantly contrasted to Davis's valiant struggle for political and economic stability in a hopelessly fragmented and underdeveloped south. The closing chapters of the war are movingly told, with that supremely artful choice of the words of the men and women involved; with irony, occasional tartness, and it must be said, with love - love for one people and the principles involved.".
