I should say so!
I have never seen this book before, but it fits in perfectly with my interest in military history. In the past I have played some of the battles described in this book as wargames with my toy soldiers - Gettysburg and Shiloh at least, probably more.
So, what is the book like?
It is great! For each of the chosen battles, it describes the background behind it, what each army was trying to achieve, etc, a detailed and beautifully written account of the battle, an explanation of why the result of the battle was important and, finally, what you will find of you visit the battlefield now! What more could you want? Well perhaps a detailed list of which regiments were at each battle and how many men were in them at the time - but no, this is not what most readers will want, and this sort of thing is worth a book in its own right, which I happen to own already!
So, thank you so much, tz! I only hope that my choice of prize for my 888 competition is as good!
