Britain's position in the American Civil War was officially neutral but there were deep sympathies in Britain for both sides in the conflict and thousands volunteered for the Union and Confederate armies. Amanda Foreman's study tells the story of Britain's crucial involvement in the war, revealing contemporary attitudes in support of either side through the letters and diaries of a cast of British and American characters ranging from diplomats and politicians to front line volunteers.
