    "Dry Civil war history 101"

    Jeff Shaara, in writing this book constructed a dry history lesson. Jeff Shaara's father, Michael Shaara, got me interested in Civil War history because the dramatization within his Civil War books, made history come to life. I loved Michael Sharra' s books. However, reading this book of Jeff Shaara, brought me painfully back to the boredom of 8th-9th grade history. If you are a genuine history buff, you may love this dry rendition. If you need history to come alive, pass on this book, and search for the father's, Michael Shaara's, fun and exciting dramatizations of Civil War history.

    "Informative battle guide"

    Shaara does a very good job of summarizing six battles of the Civil War with the focus on visiting the fields and seeing the terrain. If touring battlefields is one's desire, this book makes a great introduction.
