Transforms history into a living breathing reality. This work condenses into manageable format a complex and sometimes misunderstood period of time. Explaining that there were honorable individuals on both sides of the conflict, as well as villains and cowards.
The detail of how the war was ultimately transformed in to a fight to free slaves, from the initial goal of saving the Union is paramount.
The chapters that center on Stonewall Jackson, William T. Sherman, U.S. Grant and Uncle Bobby Lee are immensely satisfying.
The takeaway is that war is hell, should be avoided and that the initial patriotic romanticism will eventually give way a a rotting corpse of reality, cannot be missed.

Many things I thought I knew about the Civil War were corrected and in a few cases confirmed in this outstanding work of literature.
