With the upcoming sesquicentennial of the American Civil War, James McPherson's Pulitzer Prize-winning book is a must read for all Civil War aficionados and budding historians.
McPherson does an excellent job of plainly explaining the events of war and leaves the reader with a better understanding of the events that led to this bloody conflict.
If you read only one book on the history of the Civil War-–this is your book.
