This is my favorite history of the Civil War for light reading. I love the way the author phrases things, the words that I have to look up, and the little character sketches. It delves into the philosophy of government a little, but not too much.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Fletcher Pratt was one of America's leading authorities on naval & civil war history and his short history is a great read. He writes a book on the conflict thant is dynamic & exciting. Fresh & authentic details, excellent maps demonstrating main points of battle lines, flashes of insight and adding details for understanding the main characters. The book is bodly written & offers a great panorama on this bloody & tragic conflict. Would be excellent for review, high schools and research. I feel is fairly balanced on both sides of conflict.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
