Extreme Civil War

Matthew M. Stith, Extreme Civil War: Guerrilla Warfare, Environment, and Race on the Trans-Mississippi Frontier (Louisiana State University Press, 2016)

This is an important contribution to the growing literature on the environmental dimensions of the American Civil War. In this study of the western frontier Stith joins the scholars who are providing the richest environmental perspectives that we yet have on any modern industrial war, as that campaign opened the way to environmental conquest of the western United States and then across the Pacific.
