One of the best short summaries of the Civil war I have read. Historically and politically accurate. Well written. Condensed but complete; not an easy task.

I suspect his editor had him add the tech, industry and transportation sections to distinguish this book from many other summaries but there are more complete books on the railroad, bridges, and logistic of the CW. But what Bacon does write on these subjects is very well done like the entire book. ( )
