  3. John

    The book is readable and enjoyable, but it assumes a fairly high level of knowledge about civil war tactics and history If I weren t already familiar with many of the battles and historical events, I think I would have had a hard time following a lot of the narrative.

  4. Jeff

    Very well researched Unique because it looks at two very different generals Also contains a pretty good overview of significant battles of the war.
