Product Details


“Disturbs the time-honored march of history with a series of provocative what- ifs.”
The New York Times Book Review*

“Captures the drama and complexity of this volatile period [and] reminds readers that . . . events could have taken a different path. Anyone interested in the background of our greatest national crisis will find Cry Havoc! hugely rewarding.”
-Gary W. Gallagher, author of The Confederate War


Daniel M. & Marilyn W. Laney Book Prize WINNER
