The Real History of the Civil War: A New Look at the Past Reviews (5)

  • I started reading this in the hope of finding something new It had a few points of interest, but overall I found it jumped around, was disjointed and the layout with small segments not flowing with the information even harder to follow Maybe good for a senior at elementary school [..]

  • Inspired to read all of the author s other books as well. [..]

  • Fantastically written and engaging Must read. [..]

[..]
