    I have only read the introduction and half of the first chapter.

    I have only read the introduction and half of the first chapter.  The author provides extremely interesting insights into the motivations of Lincoln, Davis, McClellan, and Lee at the outset of the Civil War.  The maps are good and can be zoomed in on my tablet.  I'm reading the Nook version on a Samsung tablet.  My only criticism of the book so far is the large quantity of typos.  You quickly learn that an "i" represents the numeral one, but the date "i86r" is harder to fathom.  If you can ignore the occasional misplaced letter or punctuation mark popping up in the middle of a sentence, the grammar is good.  I can only assume the book was converted from another format to the Nook version without proper proofreading.  I'm only knocking off one star for this reason.

    This Nook Book contains a significant number of typos, such as incorrectly spelled words and odd or random punctuation. The quanity of errors is distracting and certainly takes away from the story.

    Disappointing

    I found that except for the broad statements regarding the significance of the emergence of Lee, which led me to buy and read the book, the book and the theme were drowned in an endless battery of detail.
    In addition, as I read the book on my Nook and found that the maps were pretty much unreadable.

    Good book, bad publisher

    Enjoyed the book overall, but hated the quagmire of typographic errors that leads me to believe that the book was not proof read after text imported. I would be weary of buying any futher book from Skyline.
