[tight clean copy, minor shelfwear, light smudge on top edge; jacket browned at spine and fore-edge, several ragged tears, moderate soiling esp. to rear panel]. A group of four stories set during the Civil War. "Here the men on both sides of the war are seen, not as historical figures, but as living human beings bathed in an atmosphere of devastating reality. It is as if the [Matthew] Brady prints, in all their sharpness and honesty, had suddenly become infused with life, with sound and smoke, with the fear and tedium of war." The story titles are: "The Butcher's Bill"; "My Brother's Keeper"; "The Rooster"; "The Short Straw."
