Summary
  • The key players in the conflict are meticulously analysed, not only for their ideas, motivations and strategies, but also for their personalities and appearance. There is much that is new in this epic book. Foreman's archive-rich evocation of this civil war is an eloquent testimony to her powers as an historian and story-teller's Jonna Bourke, The Times --
  • `It rolls along with the ragged grandeur of one of Ulysses S. Grant's infantry battalions. If you've an appetite for serious history, you'll be in hog-heaven' Sam Leith Spectator --
  • `A World on Fire, charting Britain's pivotal role in the American Civil War, is nothing less than a tour de force ... the pace never flags as Foreman moves the narrative effortlessly from the killing field of Antietam to the drawing rooms of London's Saul David, Literary Review --Book Jacket
