THE GREAT WHAT IFS OF THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR: Historians Tackle the Conflict's Most Intriguing Possibilities
Each entry focuses on one of the most important events of the war and unpacks the options of the moment. To understand what happened, we must look with a clear and objective eye at what could have happened, with the full multitude of choices before us. 'What if' is a tool for illumination. These essays also explode the assumptions people make when they ask 'what if' and then jump to wishful conclusions. This collection of thoughtful essays offers not alternate histories or counterfactual scenarios, but an invitation to ask, to learn, and to wonder.1 vol, 312 pgs 2022 US, SAVAS BEATIE
