A great read for history buffs or anyone who wants to know a little more about the Civil War. This book is filled with accurate information from the first shots fired at Fort Sumter to the Confederate surrender at the Appomattox Courthouse. You will be waiting for more events to come. This book is packed with illustrations, facts, statistics, and quotes. The book is split up into stories, such as “Grant Versus Lee”, that are all connected together. There are facts about the war at the end of each chapter. These facts tell about things such as : “Women in the war” which tells about the unusual ways women served in the war. A good book for ages 10-15. I enjoyed the illustrations that show what is happening in the story. They clearly show what you are reading. I give this book 4 stars.

The book in the start was not i would say is that showy as the middle and at the end there is a good bit of action and there is more of the feel that you are in a war as in the start it is like you are just there and you are just put into a war with out knowing anything but that is countered late on (spoiler alert) in the 2 chapter were you see all the maps and what the book it and also shows the map of the war the dead and hurt on both sides and so where in the book (i am sure) in a map of the generals and they way they would go with there armies (end of spoiler alert). The book i would say is a 2 star for a war book since you don't get the feeling that much and to be someone that loves that time period i just didn't feel the civil war. Would i read this again the short answer is "No." it was not something that i would come back to but it is ok if you just want something to waste your time on if you have the time. I would not say "Everyone don't buy this book" or "BUY THIS BOOK" since it is up to the person if they feel like they would like but i would just test out the book and see if you like it.
