15 The Confederate War : How Popular Will, Nationalism, and Military Strategy Could Not Stave Off Defeat Gallagher, Gary W.

This combination of factors, and less need for the complete surrender of the enemy than the Union, allowed the Confederacy to fight on longer and come closer to victory than many historians suppose.

Book Condition : Near Fine; no internal markings; slight bump to rear free end paper edge that also effects a few pages of the index.
