The best textook for the high school, preparatory academy or junior college I have ever read. --Roger McGrath, retired professor of history, UCLA
Partial truths are more dangerous than open falsehoods, as error is more easily concealed and more difficult to uncover. The history of the Civil War taught in secondary schools is typically a partial truth that conceals more than it reveals. Dwyer corrects this error not by adopting a Southern point of view - though that view is rightly included - but with a magisterial account that comprehends both in a tragic story that most Americans have yet to confront. --Donald Livingston, professor of philosophy, Emory University

If you believe that, you need to do some reading. There is too much cookie-cutter history on the shelves. You have to look beyond the obvious to find the real story. That is what makes Dwyer’s book so important. This is a fascinating book overflowing with information. Entertaining and easy to read. It would certainly be a good textbook for a study of the War. I have read a number of books on the War, the period and slavery in America, so Dwyer must have gotten it right!
