Very good reading about the events leading up to the civil war and very good chapters on the important/generals people involved in the war. Covered many things that was not addressed in history books and provided excellent insight into the era and the people.

I decided to pick this book up to hear some alternative histories of the Civil War other than what I had been told. Growing up in Buffalo, NY I learned that Confederate States were racist, hateful, bigoted, and full of uneducated people. What this book suggests is the total opposite, and it is quite well cited. This book does bring up some points that are totally logical and well backed up through historical records.
The author is certainly biased to the South, and it is very transparent.

I enjoyed this book immensely, it has changed my view on the Civil War. If you want to be able to have an enlightened and balanced conversation on the this subject, reading this book should be considered a necessity.

The author brought out brief Factual accounts of the battles and Leaders who fought and died trying to defend their definition of the constitution. I enjoyed reading all the accounts of the battles and political upheaval that occurred albeit brief . The book made me think, what if the South had won the war.

This book tells a new side of the Civil War that many people dont know. I recomend this book to anyone who wants to know more about the war.

This book was worth the read for someone who is not well versed in the Civil War. It has a Southern bias, but is still fairly objective. It provides a brief overview of several different generals from both sides. There were several typos and mistakes. All-in-all, I am glad that I read it, and I think that it is worth reading.

Some obvious bias. I do enjoy the PIG series. Anything with good information is awesome in my view!

This is the most biased, historically incorrect, self serving book I have read about the Civil War. For example, the author states that the first slaves were owned in a Northern State and then goes on to give Virginia as his example. He states that the characters in "Gone with the Wind" were exact replicas of the best of the confederacy. If this is history, it is history from a time, place, and planet which is not our own. McPherson he is not.
