One War at a Time

$ 21.95

One War at a Time - Lincoln's axiom for Union diplomacy - reveals Lincoln's continuing efforts to avoid a war with England or France while using the threat of war to prevent European recognition of Confederate independence. No other book offers such a thorough review of Union and Confederate relations with Britain. Mahin also provides the first full analysis of U.S. and Confederate reactions to the French intervention in Mexico and to the efforts to establish an imperial government in Mexico headed by an Austrian archduke.
