A country Sundered - an international Engulfed is the 1st quantity of a three-part paintings, Democracy's lacking Arsenal. DMA explores an international within which a accomplice victory within the Civil warfare has devastating results on foreign and nice strength family members over the subsequent century. this isn't a unique; relatively, it's an alternate heritage of an international within which there is not any united usa to function FDR's "Arsenal of Democracy." it's a nightmare international -- one the place slavery is neither stamped out nor fades away, and the place the U.S. can't interfere decisively at the Western entrance since it is enmeshed at the Potomac entrance. quantity One starts in September 1862 no longer with the stalemate of the military of Northern Virginia at Antietam, yet with the cave in of the military of the Potomac a number of rating miles north: at Gettysburg. This victory, denied to Lee in our global simply via happenstance, activates the shelving of the Emancipation Proclamation in addition to Anglo-French diplomatic intervention. the remainder is, good, exchange background, resulting in the realization of quantity One on the negotiated finish of the 1st global conflict -- in 1900.

The results of virtually twenty years of study, examine, and on-the-ground battlefield treks, DMA paints a pragmatic photo of what could have been, with a spotlight some distance varied from different entries within the burgeoning "alternative historical past" style. Northern defeat might have echoed in Bolivia and Brazil, in Persia and the Phillippines, within the debates on Irish domestic Rule and within the crafting of the nature of the redoubtable Georges Clemenceau.

The overriding topic of DMA is that particular activities do subject, that background isn't crafted exclusively through impersonal forces, and that not anything is really inevitable. it may sound a clarion demand ultra-modern international - an markedly imperfect global, to make certain, yet person who has not less than refrained from the deadly absence of Democracy's lacking Arsenal.
