'The cooking is everything' said General Silas Casey in 1862. 'If not well done it is positively injurious; if well done, it is wholesome.' The Civil War Cookbook intertwines history and cuisine for a new insight into the lives of soldiers on the battlefield and their loved ones at home. For both soldiers and civilians, life was hard, and skill and imagination were essential ingredients in every meal. Tracing the culinary experiences of soldiers from leaving home to the shock of the camp kitchens, this absorbing book features recipes, together with new, full colour photographs. Evocative illustrations, period photographs, and anecdotes provide historical background, and combine to create a memorable, highly personal record.
