    The battle at Fredericksburg, Virginia, in 1862 resulted in a victory for Robert E Lee's Confederate Army and heavy losses for the Union. This study of the important Civil War engagement, written by a psychologist, focuses on the human element - the motivations, passions and emotions of the people who fought on each side - using letters, diaries and memoirs to reveal the courage, cowardice, compassion and cruelty of soldiers and civilians under the stress of war.
