    Even before the first rumblings of secession shook the halls of Congress, British involvement in the coming schism was inevitable. Britain was dependent on the South for cotton, and in turn the Confederacy relied almost exclusively on Britain for guns, bullets, and ships. The Union sought to block any diplomacy between the two and consistently teetered on the brink of war with Britain. For four years the complex web of relationships between the countries led to defeats and victories both minute and history-making.

    What disappointed you about A World on Fire?

    Too much focus on social interactions. Read like society pages. I read first 3rd but couldn't finish it.


    What three words best describe Robertson Dean’s voice?

    Excellent, easy to listen to.
