Great Book for the Civil War Buff
I bought this book for my roommate who is a civil war buff. I mean he reads lots of book on the topic. He loved this audible book. He actually listened to it twice back to back. He said he learned alot of tidbits about what was actually going on during the time period that he really didn't get from other books. After this book I went out and bougth 3 other, You don't Know much about...books and none have been as good as this one.

Low-hassle overview of the basics of the war
I didn't want a blow by blow rehearsal of every battle. I wanted the background, contributing factors, results... and a little decoding of the civil war special words and ideas. I wanted to be conversant on the topic without wading through all of the minutia. This book did exactly that. There are little irritations in the technical elements of the production, but the content was right on target.
