I heartily recommend it to anyone with an interest in the American Civil War, even if just in passing, as this book will stimulate that taste even more. I think the highest praise I can offer concerns its accessibility - I found my thirteen year old son reading it over breakfast one day, and then I had to rescue it from his room to complete my review! * Miniature Wargames - Melvyn Jenkins-Welch 27/04/2015 *
