Synopsis: We know the uniforms they wore, the weapons they carried, and the battles they fought, but what did they eat and, of even greater curiosity, was it any good? Now, for the very first time, the food that fuelled the armies of the North and the South and the soldiers' opinions of it - ranging from the sublime to just slime - is front and centre in a biting, fascinating look at the Civil War as written by one of its most respected historians. There's even a comprehensive 'cookbook' of actual recipes included for those intrepid enough to try a taste of the Civil War.
