I enjoy a lot of Civil War stuff, from movies to books. I've never done reenactments, but have considered it from time to time. I've got a pretty extensive knowledge on the subject, but these fellas hit me with some things I'd never heard of before.
I enjoy how they split the book up, 6 parts in total, replete with a quiz at the end just to see if you were paying attention! This would be a good book to help prepare for a civil war history class, going into an environment in which this could come up in a discussion, or just reading it for your own edification and interests. I really enjoyed how the book focused on some NOT so well known players, such as a 10 year old kid. Yes, big names are used, but it's those in the background that you haven't heard of (most likely) that really piques one's interest.
History buffs should really enjoy this text, so should anyone who teaches the subject, because it reveals alot of truths that are glossed over or never discussed. I just learned that this is part of a War series, and that the series is not just about the Civil War. I will be looking into those books as well in the future. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like ME will decide based on my review.
Get this book and get to learning the truth and hidden facts about the Civil War.

I liked how the book is divided into six-parts. The book provides enough information for one to attend a party or discussion on the Civil War and participate.
