Comments about The Civil War:
The audio CD version is great for listening to on long car trips. There is much use of reference to historical documents and eyewitness accounts as well as reference to the causes of the war and the other issues surrounding the conflict i.e. Abolition of slavery.
"An absorbing experience... A fine work of scholarship."- "Boston Globe ""Succeeds in evoking both the grandeur of the war and its basic humanity."- "Chicago Tribune"
