The word narrative is the key to this book's extraordinary incandescence and truth: The story is told entirely from the point of view of the people involved. One learns not only what was happening on all fronts but also how the author discovered it during his years of exhaustive research.
This is a must-listen for anyone interested in one of the bloodiest wars in America's history.

Long Listen But So Good
There are times when my mind wonders off while listening, so I recommend pacing yourself when listening.
This is such a great story and very beautifully written. I highly recommend it for American History fans.
The story is also a bit of military history. It's fascinating to hear not only the story of the Civil War but also the start of American military might. Tactics and inventions used by both sides eventually find their way into the reunified military. When you hear them mentioned in passing in this story, it's cool to know where it will lead (e.g. Beauregard playing around but failing with submarines).
