    Editorial overview... Not 101

    Though seeing the total number of pages was a clue to its brief overview, the "101" is really the authors editorial overview. A "101" is a primer to a larger path, not an A to Z in 27 pages. Not worth the $6.00.

    Big picture, quick read

    Fun easy to read format. Animations are entertaining and informative. Provides a good overview, doesnt go into battle details. Explains key reasons for the war and results and how it shaped our future. Would like a quiz at the end to test my new knowledge.
