REVIEWS OF Civil War Battlefields and Landmarks: A Guide to National Park Sites
'A really good book on the Civil War... the first part discusses all the battles and gives you maps and casualties, really well done, [with] good graphics. The book also discusses all of the generals and critiques them. A perfect book to get an overview of the War: I highly recommend it, to a novice or a Civil War buff.' - Shannon Deason
