I am not a Civil War history buff but my father-in-law read this and raved about it so much my husband decided to purchase it. He used up all our credits on it and I needed something to listen to until we got our new credits on the 10th. I figured I'd just listen to it until then and pitch it for something else.
Well, the 10th came and went and I was still captivated by this story. I was hooked! It's all very factual but wrapped up in such a great sense of import that it was absolutely enthralling. I will admit some of the politics got to be a bit complicated and there are several instances where a visual timeline would have been greatly helpful but as long as I was not intent on memorizing every move, name and circumstance, I found it to be generally enjoyable.
I learned more about the Civil War listening to this than I did in my history classes and it was more interesting than a textbook. I have a completely new appreciation for the struggle our country faced and came through. I plan on looking for a similar book on reconstruction so I can have a feel for how our country began to heal from this tragic era in our history.
I highly recommend this to everyone.

This series should be read first before all others. It is an excellent perspective of the War from why it started to its final conclusion.
