The Classic Civil War History

by Bill M on Feb 2, 2012

All I can say is that it kept me interested through all three volumes. This is another way to say that Catton had enough detail without being overwhelming, and that what he focused on was the essential. If you are going to read a 1000-plus page history of the civil war, though, you have to be ready for some monotony, which for me resided in the description of battles. I occasionally would have preferred a scoreboard to the thrusts and parries.
