"Concisely and judiciously examines the military campaigns and battles and weaves them into a seamless narrative accessible to both novice and expert. . . . A thought-provoking, well-argued, engagingly written, and thoroughly enjoyable narrative, Hess's The Civil War in the West is by far one of the best general accounts of the war."
