Very militarily-oriented and even for the military enthusiasts I'm guessing this one isn't a huge hit (too basic for the enthusiasts and too detailed for the layman). Some good information and the maps are certainly reproducable for the classroom (although I'm not sure if the author allows teachers to do this?), but in general this wouldn't be a must-read I'd suggest for those hoping to learn more about the Civil War.
A pretty good overview of the military battles and campaigns of the civil war. The 150th anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg was just a few weeks ago. I finally have an understanding of why the battle was so important. I recommend this for anyone interested in Civil War or military history.
