Gerald F. Linderman's book Embattled Courage: the Experience of Combat in the American Civil War is a comprehensive and well-researched study of the Civil War experience from the perspective of the average soldier on both sides. Linderman's book is divided into three parts: "The Soldier in Combat," "The Home Front," and "The Aftermath." In "The Soldier in Combat," Linderman examines the physical and psychological challenges of combat, from the training that leads up to battle to the actual fighting. In "The Home Front," Linderman looks at the ways that the war affected civilians both at home and in the battlefields. Finally, in "The Aftermath," Linderman examines the long-term effects of the Civil War on both the soldiers who fought and the civilians who suffered. Linderman's book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the Civil War, and it is sure to be enjoyed by Civil War historians and enthusiasts alike.; 8vo; 357 pages.
