Beginning with the observation, . . . there were no united states in 1787, Grady McWhiney offers a condensed account of the Civil War that goes far beyond that of a simple military history. He focuses on the most basic political, social, and economic factors that led to and determined the outcome of the most costly war to occur on American soil. All the while, McWhiney highlights the debates surrounding slavery as well as the regional differences that existed even before the time when there were no United States.
