I started this book thinking I would just read the chapters on Gettysburg because of our upcoming trip there. Then, I started reading more of it and found the author to be a highly perceptive and elegant writer, covering the issues of the Civil War effectively and clearly. So, I read the entire book!

This is the fourth book I've read by Robert Leckie.

The books were well ...more

A good definitive overview of the Civil War. Long, of course, but written very well. The chapters I enjoyed the most were the short bios of the major players such as Longstreet, Lee, Lincoln etc.
