There is not much in this book that hasn't already been said before. I got the impression that the author simply gathered together information from other sources and pulled together a book with little original thought.
For an excellent, informative, and easy to read history of the American Civil War, this three-volume series can't be beat. I have read a lot about the War, visited battlefields, etc., but this narrative put things in perspective by connecting all the pieces chronologically. I know it's long, but well worth the effort. You do miss something in the audio version by not having the maps that are in the books, but I didn't find that to be a major issue.
