Fair in fair dust jacket. Sewn binding. Cloth over boards. 632 p. Audience: General/trade. Must have gotten damp at one time. However, there are not major water marks and the text and pictures (many) are in good condition.
A perfectly fantastic photo collection of Civil War to add to my treasured bookcase.

Pound for pound, penny for penny, dollar for dollar this simply is the best you can buy. Extreemly well written and wrapped around a huge amount of pictures and artist drawings, this book seem to "come alive" ... It is packed full of information and side topics yet is never dull nor dry. I loved this book so much I bought one for my sister and found two more locally that I gave away to friends for great reading. While I can see it would be very easy to read straight through, I found it was written so I could read a section and when I came back to pick up where I left off, I could easily remember what had happened what I last read. There is an especially great way they create and "overhead view" characterization of several major battles... This is a "Must" read for civil war buffs and as a teacher, I would want this as mandatory reading for all my history students.
