Overview

Finding the best sites on the Civil War can be a daunting task when you consider that a simple search on the web for 'Civil War' can yield over a million hits. The Civil War on the Web, SR Books' highly acclaimed guide to Internet resources, eliminates this problem.

The authors have examined thousands of websites to prepare this invaluable book. This newly revised edition contains only the most carefully constructed, highly informative, artfully designed sites on the Civil War. Sites that have become outdated since the release of the first edition in 2000 have been deleted and additional outstanding sources of information have been added.

The Civil War on the Web includes:

• Detailed reviews of the top 100 sites

• A one- to five-star rating of each site's content, aesthetics, and navigation

• A list of over 300 additional recommended sites including URLs and brief descriptions

• Free CD-ROM (PC and MAC compatible) with hotlinks to all 400-plus sites in the book

The Civil War on the Web is the indispensable 'toolkit' for Civil War buffs, history enthusiasts, and web surfers to pinpoint the best websites on the Civil War.
