During the Civil War, battles inaudible to those several miles from the fighting were sometimes heard clearly 100 miles from the battlefield, and the careers of prominent Civil War generals were affected by unusual battlefield acoustics. Ross (physics, Longwood College) examines the acoustics of six Civil War battles and looks at the role acoustics played in determining command decisions and in the outcome of the war. Includes b&w historical photos. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
