The Smell of Battle, the Taste of Siege

A Sensory History of the Civil War

Mark M. Smith

  • No other book has looked at the Civil War through the prism of the five senses, or considered their impact on various groups of individuals
  • The engaging accounts from diaries, letters, and journals give readers a first-hand glimpse of the experience of war
  • Smith is widely considered America's leading practitioner of the new and burgeoning field of "sensory history"
