Fun to read, but be warned...
...you had better be up on your Civil War basics before attempting to read this book. It assumes that the reader is well aware of the main battles, campaigns, personalities and relative strengths and weaknesses of both the North and the South.
|Union General William Tecumseh Sherman|
There's bound to be something new in here for everyone but the hardest of the hard core Civil War aficionados. Well-written, breezy, although oftentimes disjointed and random.
This book is also published under the titles Our Incredible Civil War and The Incredible Civil War by the same author.
I rate this book 4 stars out of 5.
This book can be found on Amazon.com here: The Civil War: Strange and Fascinating Facts by Burke Davis.
