    " My friend and I call this book our battlefield bible. Thanks to Mr. Shaara we have found several out of the way sights we wouldn't have known to look for otherwise. It's a great book and way cheaper than hiring a battlefield guide! "

    " This is a great resource. It personalizes the history of these battlefields and improves the experience of visiting them more than a typical guidebook. "

    " A new look at some of the famous and not so famous Civil War Battlefields. Much more interesting I would imagine to those who have studied the war or visited one of the sites in the book. Well written and easy to read. "
