As a civil war buff from the south I'm always picking up a new book that catches my attention. I thought this book may really be on the "causes" of the civil war rather than on the "X" and "O's" of battle.<BR/><BR/>Unfortunately I was severely dissappointed. Almost none of the book centered around the causes of the war, either perceived or actual. Like a few authors before him, Ayers turns very quickly in the book to demeaning the south and it's intellect, heritage, and differences with the almighty can do no wrong industrialized north. <BR/><BR/>He also spends way too long puffing out his and C. Vann Woodward's chest's as awesome historians. While I am educated and can understand all the three dollar words in the book, I was tempted to skip pages due to all the pomposity in the book.<BR/><BR/>Please skip this book.<BR/><BR/>Danny Littleton<BR/>Tupelo, MS
