Civil War History for the Rest of Us
Just what do I mean, "for the rest of us"? Well, as much as I love the work of most Civil War historians, and I count many among my friends, the fact is that countless Civil War titles are written more for the praises of other historians than for the everyday "man/woman on the street." I try to write for the average person who would like to learn more about the Civil War but who doesn't want to have to wade through a 300-page volume to do so. Concise but comprehensive is my goal. Interspersed within my narratives you will find links to authoritative websites dealing with the personalities, battles, campaigns, and events that I write about. Therefore, you can tailor your study to whatever depth you desire. I hope you will agree that my books do offer you a concise, but comprehensive treatment of the topics they cover, regardless of the title you choose.

Shelby Foote said, “The Civil War defined us as what we are and it opened us to being what we became, good and bad things... It was the crossroads of our being, and it was a hell of a crossroads.” Every U.S. citizen should have at least some basic knowledge of it. And, history doesn’t have to be dull. After all, history is defined by wars. Wars are defined by military campaigns and battles. Thus, history itself is actually defined by campaigns and battles. So, this means that in order to gain a basic understanding of an era’s history, we can get rid of all the really boring stuff and just concentrate on its military history. You don't have to read a history book written to impress other historians. Try The American Civil War: A Military Overview or any of my other five titles and judge for yourself.
