This book has a terrific premise which is to write about key Civil War military and political figures on what they did and how they fared after the war. Unfortunately, the book spends more time on what they did during the war and should have spent more time on what happened afterwards. That being said, you still get a good idea of the lives of these people during the years after the war.
