Tess Press 1995 1603760202 / 9781603760201 Paperback Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
From the back cover: "Originally published in 1959 as part of a two-volume set, The West Point Atlas of War: The Civil War provides a unique way of studying military history. From the First Bull Run Campaign to Sherman's March to the Sea, detailed maps delineate the course of the many conflicts that defined the Civil War. They also create a fascinating visual tribute to the ingenuity of troop movements by detailing the progress of forces from day to day (and sometimes from hour to hour). The accompanying text provides insight into the many twists and turns of the war, as well as the motivation of the leaders directing the troops who carried them out. Considered a classic of military history, the original volumes were prepared by distinguished members of the Department of Military Art and Engineering at the U. S. Military Academy and used as instructional tools for the cadets. This mammoth and invaluable work was created under the direction of Brigadier General Vincent J. Esposito, a faculty member at West Point for more than twenty years. His highly respected endeavor allows readers to easily follow the entire course of a campaign or battle in detail while gaining a greater understanding of the Civil War." ; 13.90 X 9.90 X 0.90 inches

Xxiv, [2], 850 pages, well illustrated, pictorial wrappers, very good. From a review by Jim Lonsdale on the Amazon website: "Having recently completed a project on the American Civil War, I have to say that the "Historical Times Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Civil War" is hands down my favorite of the Civil War reference books in encyclopedic form. 850 pages packed with terminology, battle information, and all the critical dates. What I like the most though is the large amount of biographical information on so many of the key figures in the war, from diplomat Charles Francis Adams, Sr. To Confederate general Felix Kirk Zollicoffer, and most of them with photographs, to help put a face with the names. A wonderfully written and thoroughly researched book which makes every effort not to take a side, but rather to just provide all the essential information. Definitely a must have for anyone interested in the American Civil War." B18-1; 850 pages
