This review is from: Fateful Lightning: A New History of the Civil War and Reconstruction (Paperback)
I started reading Civil War history about a year ago -- I have some time to devote to this interest after semi-retiring. I had read several books of history and memoirs (including Grant's), but I still didn't have a clear view of the overall context and course of the War. So this book is just what I needed at the time. I learned a lot about the events that led to the war, and there is also information about Reconstruction that led me to order a book recommended by Guelzo: The Era of Reconstruction 1865-1877 by Kenneth M. Stampp. (I haven't read it yet.)
I recommend this book to those whose interest in the Civil War is sufficient to justify reading a work of this length.

But remember, unless you have Great Eyesight, you'll never be able to read this fine Book!
