Pub. Date:
Öfele (U. of Munich and Lepizig) looks at the American Civil War from a unique and cogent angle--from that of the 500,000 Union Arny soldiers that were actually European immigrants. The author maintains that wars have always prompted both immigration and social change since it exposes people to other regions and cultures, providing an impetus for migration. Photographs from the era, which help to break up the dense and detailed text, document the more notable immigrants who influenced the outcome of the conflict.
