This three-volume "narrative" is a military history of the Civil War. Politic history is addressed to the extent that it clarifies military events. These books reveal how truly tragic the Civil War was for both sides. He also does a good job or portraying the strengths and weaknesses of the confederate and federal generals who ran the show. It took me about a year to get through all three volumes.
