dc.description.abstractThe concept of "grand strategy" is both an overall plan that encompasses the military, diplomatic, economic, and social aspects of waging war, and an analytical lens through which we can examine the progression of historical conflicts and obtain a more comprehensive understanding of why they were fated the way they were. The American Civil War is a truly massive specimen that is frequently analyzed in smaller proportions that do not do the complex and fluid nature of the conflict justice. Too often are inflated importances given to individual battles and people. Examining the grand strategies of the Union and Confederacy - whether intentional or not - yields a clearer picture of how the war reached its outcome, and assigns the proper levels of importance to the various aspects of the conflict.en_US
