    "This is a large format, soft-cover book which I think is fabulous...Even those not normally interested in the ACW could pick this up and enjoy looking through the superb artwork of Don Troiani. For the ACW historian, there is simply lots of information to get from reading all the background to the many regiments they cover, and an understanding of the uniforms and equipment they wore. Then for the modeller, there is simply so much inspiration in the artwork on display both with the detail of the varied uniforms but in possible poses and diorama settings if you choose to try and replicate any of these scenes in model form. An excellent book on all counts in my view and...good value for money."
