The series of letters is an incredible find. The editing was well done, there were lots of historical notes clarifying historical events/battles. Note that this is a series of letters collected in as original setting as possible, so they are not always the clearest. But this is not a novel, so I didn't mind. Some might, though. Still, a good book and for a Civil War buff, a necessary one.
