    Pretty Cool

    This is a good book if you like the civil war and my favorite is the maps they show where soldiers stood and fought.

    More Ficticious than Gulliver's Travels

    One set of falsehoods and tall tales after another. The author's names may well be the only truth in this collection of myths. Example: Even the most stallwart of modern-day anti-Longstreet authors admits there was no truth whatsoever to the 'sunrise attack order' for General James Longstreet at Gettysburg, yet it is once more purported here as fact. What passes for facts in this book are simply reiterations of the 'lost cause mythology' which has been disproven many times over. As a matter of fact, I will reward handsomely anyone who can produce irrefutable evidence that General Lee ordered Longstreet to attack at sunrise at Gettysburg or that General Lee was at all upset with Longstreet's deportment during that battle. It simply does not exist. The American reader deserves better than this. Don't waste your money.
