A great book

Every single chapter should be a movie! The events are super cool and are so good you might think there out of a action movie than from the pages of a history book.

Exactly what you'd expect

The series paints the American Civil War in the over the top, badass style Ben Thompson is known and loved for. Every character is badass and their awesomeness is inflated, whether they deserve to be or not.
