The first of a three volume history of the Civil War was a masterfully written story of one of the critical periods in our nations history. The author not only gave us the history of the period, but he introduced the reader to many of the key figures in the war between the states. In doing so he revealed their thinking and decisions which helps us better understand this most tragic period in our nations history. He revealed their strengths and character flaws, which often lead to the death of many men and a prolongation of the war. The amount of detail can be overwhelming at times, yet it reveals the depth of research that had to have been done to produce this masterpiece of history. No one who listens to these books will ever be able to say they don't understand the factors that lead to the war between the states or the extent of the tragedy that almost destroyed the United States. I am looking forward to listening to the other two volumes.
