Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The Civil War was the defining event in American history.
The Civil War 100 uses a truly novel approach to analyze the respective importance of the events, leaders and battles of America's most important war.

"Across this easily accessible reference, readers meet not
only such icons as Lincoln and Lee, but also chronic fumblers
whose tarnished reputations have most often sunk beneath
the notice of the endless waves of Civil War histories...A
recommended reference for the aficionado and the uninitiated
alike. Those well-versed in Civil War lore will enjoy the
intellectual challenge of supporting or debunking Lanning's
rankings, while the merely curious will be exposed to an
insightful world of detail that they may have otherwise
missed." -ForeWord Magazine
