With My Face to the Enemy is a collection of powerful, insightful essays about the Civil War by some of the most renowned historians in their field. Essayists include: Stephen W. Sears on Stonewall Jackson's last march; James M. McPherson on failed Southern strategies; Joseph T. Glattharr on Ulysses S. Grant at Vicksburg; and Noah Andre Trudeau on the Fort Pillow massacre. Each of these absorbing pieces has appeared in print only once before: in the pages of the award-winning, authoritative MHQ: The Quarterly Journal of Military History. In each issue, MHQ brings the history of warfare and of society to life through vivid narrative accounts of the key events--some well known, some seemingly obscure--that have shaped the world we live in today. Perhaps because it was fought on American soil, pitting brother against brother, friend against friend, freedom against slavery, and states' rights against the principle of union, the Civil War remains a powerful presence in the American imagination. For this reason, With My Face to the Enemy will find a large and appreciative audience, eager to hear what our era's most distinguished historical thinkers and writers have to say about a conflict that still echoes in our hearts and minds to this day.
