"With admirable style, Susan-Mary Grant has given us the best brief history of the American Civil War. She combines a balanced and wide-ranging perspective with revealing first-hand testimony. The result is a narrative that is useful and engaging on every facet of this complex drama."
- Edward L. Ayers, author of In the Presence of Mine Enemies: War in the Heart of America, 1859-1863 and The Promise of the New South: Life after Reconstruction
"In this engaging and fast-paced study of the crux of American history, Susan-Mary Grant interweaves concise narrative and assured analysis to produce a work which properly puts the battle-field to the fore, but which never loses sight of the larger context and the war's significance in national construction. It is an admirable achievement."
-Richard Carwardine, author of Lincoln: A Life of Purpose and Power
"Susan-Mary Grant's impressive War for a Nation clears a fresh path through the debris-both material and intellectual-of America's most destructive conflict."
-Charles Joyner, author of Down by the Riverside: A South Carolina Slave Community
