For ACW fans

Thought I would pass along some information on a book.Its not a new book,I first read it when I was a kid.My dad would visit a friend of his and take me along ,his friend was a history teacher and owned this book.I didn\'t read so much as look at the pictures of the wonderful battle maps.Later as an adult I purchased the book and read it and not just for the pictures ;) .That was about close to 20 years ago.It is the greatest book,written by the greatest author of the ACW.His name is Bruce Catton and most ACW historians would agree that he is.The magic in his writing is not that he wrote a complex volumn going into massive detail on everything,but rather how he wrote in a easy flowing manner that did not overload you on detail,but still informed you on what you needed to know and putting it all into a neat package.So the book I\'m recommending is outstanding in written form and the pictures are first rate,and yes I\'m sure you will love the battle maps! :thumbsup:
