    For Dummies and By Dummies

    This is the poorest excuse for a history book I've ever read. Just because it's a "For Dummies" doesn't mean that the book doesn't matter. A few observations:

    I'd have been happier if the "legend" of map symbols did not say "calvary" twice, instead of "cavalry". Come on, folks, we admitted that we're dummies when we bought the book, but that doesn't mean we're idiots.

    I could have done without the seemingly random uses of "he or she", "him or her". The book is populated almost exclusively by male characters, as were the armies in question. Save the clumsy PC gibberish for "Political Correctness for Dummies".

    Johnson and Johnston are not the same person.

    "Army of Tennessee" and "Army of the Tennessee" are not the same army.

    Shifting from past tense to present tense in one set of bullet points is sub-literate.

    Using the present tense to describe past events is "History Channel" moronic.

    Describing a saber as curved and providing an illustration of a straight sword is not useful.

    To mislocate Forts Henry and Donelson is not acceptable.

    I could go on, but you get the idea.

    I won't bother mentioning the grammatical errors or the general clumsiness of the writing. I also won't detail the uselessness of the maps, or the paucity and poor quality of the illustrations.

    This is the first "For Dummies" that I haven't liked. Had it been my first purchase of a "For Dummies", I would never have purchased a second.

    Save your money
