Following her bestselling Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire, Foreman’s second book examines the role of the British in the American Civil War. While Britain antagonized the North by buying Southern cotton and supplying the Confederacy with weapons, British citizens helped both the North and the South, serving as soldiers, nurses, and spies.
