Description

In Battle Tactics of the Civil War, Paddy Griffith argues that, far from being the first 'modern' war, it was the last 'Napoleonic' war, and that none of the innovations of industrialized warfare had any significant effect on the outcome.

The author

Paddy Griffith studied battle tactics in many major conflicts and wrote extensively on military subjects. He was senior lecturer in war studies at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst.
