The Coming Fury: The Centennial History of the Civil War, Volume 1 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

Catton effectively outlines the political, cultural, economic, and psychological issues that led up to the firing on Ft. Sumter. He vividly describes the personalities involved in the political arena of the Civil War - many of whom receive little if any recognition in our history books. His writing style holds the readers attention and provides clarity to what can be a muddled antebellum landscape.

I purchased the audio download version from B&N. The money part of the transaction took less than 5 minutes. I went to download the book and received a recurring error message. Spent 20 minutes on phone with CR. When it looked like they had no idea when the product I had purchased would be available again I demanded a refund. Apparently the money flows more quickly from my hands to theirs than from their hands to mine. Paypal transaction to B&N 30 seconds. Refund transaction back to me 24 to 48hrs. Not impressed with B&N's electronic presence on the web after this encounter.
