Battle in the Civil War: Generalship and Tactics in America 1861-65 by Paddy Griffith, illustrated by Peter Dennis.

A structured analysis of all aspects of Civil War combat, making a surprisingly technical and detailed coverage compressed into such a short space (This doubtless explains why it has been used as a set text by several universities). Sub-sections cover the army commander's perspectives in first setting up and then running a battle: the arts of generalship at the level of Corps and Division command; and then a long section on the regiment's battle, including minor tactics, weapons, combat psychology - and the casualties.

"This book represents outstanding value for money, and I strongly urge you to get a copy" - Wargame Review.
