5.0 out of 5 starsInteresting History book
Reviewed in the United States on August 3, 2018
I love history and have read many history books. This book is written mainly for the person that doesn't normally read history. It makes the history enjoyable to read. I found that I also enjoyed reading this book also and could not put it down. I would recommend this for anyone who has an interest in the civil war.

My kids and I love these books! The audible versions are really nice and we have listened to all of them, but we have also purchased the books so that we could look through them and work on writing projects. My children and I first listened to the Vikings last year when they were in grades, 4, 3, and 2. This year we have used the Revolutionary war book and are now moving onto the Civil War book. We have just started listening to it and we already love it!
The Guts and Glory book that I read had historical inaccuracies, poor language, but worst of all they indicated a full refund but I only received half my money back after the expense of returning them. Don`t buy the Guts & Glory books.
This is the perfect next step for fans of Nathan Hale's Hazerdous tales. It's not graphic novel format but has just enough illustrations to get your kid interested and bam, they are reading more words on a page then ants under my kitchen table. My son is a big history fan and he said they were great. I got a lot of "Did you knows... ?" while he was reading them. He wants more.
5.0 out of 5 starsMakes history interesting for a modern generation.

Ben Thompson is a funny man who know how to write about history without it being boring for anyone. I love history to begin with but the history combined with his phrasing makes it somehow seem like it happened just a short time ago, you forget the years and get to step into history. Granted the phrasing he uses may not work on generations that did not grow up with the internet, but if you have it is a great way to experience history.
