The details of this war-each important battle, the military tactics, the fighting men, the government personages-are set forth clearly and objectively. Colonel Reeder's personal involvement in the war, in addition to a firsthand supply of anecdotes gained from friends in combat branches of the service, adds valuable human-interest touches to this carefully researched history.
"War is more than statistical evidence," writes the West Point Library reviewer of Colonel Reeder's first volume. " An old soldier-one of the very best-such as our author knows this fact. His style is crisp and engaging. Stories, anecdotes, entries from diaries, enliven the principals and perhaps lay bare their motivations. Its readability is this history's prime asset, which makes it a valuable tool for the young student; but it should also prove of importance to the older generation."
Useful appendices include a chronological table of events of the war, a synopsis of major conferences, and a fine bibliography and index.
