Many books may go into greater detail on specifics of the war, individual battles, prominent military leaders, etc., but few books can match the sheer volume of information. Written without bias Mr. Jordan gives both sides to the battles and allows the reader to judge the reasons for the war for themselves. For Civil War buffs or those just getting to know the War Between the States, this is a great resource for knowledge on the subject.
