"We were blown away by the breadth and depth of material as well the eye-popping art direction. The print edition is as good as any Civil War anthology we've ever seen, while the digital version pushes the publishing envelope with the fully animated battle maps, data-rich info graphics, diagrams, photo libraries and a host of multimedia features. Regardless of the format, this collection is a must-have for any student of the American Civil War."

"There are truly not enough superlatives to describe this volume. . . . To accompany each chapter, the text provides lavish maps, timelines, figures, and order-of-battle diagrams for each of the major battles and campaigns."
New York Journal of Books
"The special value of this book lies in its splendid presentation: it features excellent illustrations, maps, timelines, and charts, as well as reproductions of key documents and letters."
