Format: Paperback
This book deserves 5 stars. Francis W. Springer does an excellent job of bursting the bubbles of the traditional 'Civil War' myths that are taught in high school. After reading this book, you will never look at the 'Civil War', or The South, in the same way again. I recommend this book to anyone interested in finding out about the real 'Civil War.'

Format: Paperback
This book is deceptive in that its small size might lead one to believe the book is light reading. Far from it. The book is a sound analysis of the political/economic realities that led to secession and war. It delves deeply past the modern-day politically-correct pap that currently passes as history. Well worth the effort to get this one!

It took Amazon almost 3 months to find this book but it was well worth the wait! If you're interested in the War Between the States and its causes, if you are as nauseated by the current climate of political correctness as I am, and if you really want to see what the authors of your high school history textbooks left out, then you owe it to yourself to order Springer's book. Then hunker down and wait....it will be well worth it!

15 of 19 people found the following review helpful By Greg Barnes on July 5, 2003
Format: Paperback
This book details the Southern case in the debate over which side was right. Springer brings out a lot of facts that do not appear in the standard books on the subject (which are written from the Yankee perspective). He could have done a better job of footnoting, but that is my only complaint about the book. It deserves much wider distribution, especially among our schools.

It's amazing to me that this little book has gone unnoticed for so long. It is a great read. It is easy to read. It is well-documented and will teach you things about the history of this country no one else will.
Is 5-stars as high as the ratings go?

Unlike the good-guy North vs. bad-guy South story which you were taught in high school, and which is still promulgated in practically every documentary you can find, this book tells the real story about this unnecessary and tragic conflict. It's a must-read for anyone who appreciates *reality*.
