really liked it
bookshelves: history-general
Read in August, 2009

I am assigning the prologue and first chapter to my students this semester. I wanted a book that talked about the war and the conditions of war without focusing on military history in a battle-tastic way. There is a compelling narrative here, well written, straight-forward without being boring. The book does a great job presenting the class differences of the South, which sometimes gets lost in the discussion.
