Eye of the storm : a Civil War odyssey by Robert Knox Sneden( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eye of the Storm is one of the most important Civil War documents to be published since Ulysses S. Grant's Personal Memoirs. Four tattered scrapbooks found in a Connecticut bank vault in 1994 yielded a treasure trove of more than five hundred watercolors that vividly depict America's great national drama. These scrapbooks--plus a five-thousand-page illustrated memoir that came to light later--are the life's achievement of a long-forgotten Union private and mapmaker named Robert Knox Sneden."--Jacket

Cry havoc! : the crooked road to Civil War, 1861 by Nelson D Lankford( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Abraham Lincoln became president on March 4, 1861, crisis had already gripped the nation. Perhaps by then it was too late to avert civil war, but the conflict that broke out a few weeks later was by no means preordained. The particular way it unfolded rested in the hands of individuals, not irresistible historical forces. Cry Havoc! recounts in detail the small quirks of timing, character, and place - especially in Virginia and Maryland - that influenced the huge trajectory of events during eight critical weeks from Lincoln's inauguration through the explosion at Fort Sumter and Lincoln's response to it. A chain of decisions and miscalculations, influenced by swollen vanity and wishful thinking, gave shape to the dreadful conflict to come."--Jacket
The last American aristocrat : the biography of David K.E. Bruce, 1898-1977 by Nelson D Lankford( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born into the Virginia gentry, David K. E. Bruce was, and in the words of his brother-in-law Paul Mellon, "the very epitome of the Greek Aristos." Handsome, brilliant, and entirely at ease with his own wealth and the fabulous Mellon riches, he was the perfect young dilettante. But as he matured and World War II loomed, he devoted himself to public service and to turning American foreign policy from isolationism to world leadership - and went on to become ambassador to three crucial countries and an adviser and confidant to every president from Harry Truman to Gerald Ford. During the war he headed OSS spy operations in London and, with his pal Ernest Hemingway, was among the first Americans to enter Paris. After the war he headed the Marshall Plan in France during the critical years when it seemed that France might turn to communism. He played a crucial part in building the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the gift to the nation of his father-in-law, Andrew Mellon. When Bruce divorced Ailsa Mellon after enduring years of her chronic mental illness, he remained close friends with her brother, Paul
