I found it strangely anti-southern in some really unnecessary ways...mostly the tone of the writing and some odd statements at the end. Not really strict history so much as an emotionally narrated story. I would sell it on ebay and get Cozzens' trilogy..although it is a really tough read, I would definitely consider it far superior to Bowers effort. Although Bowers descriptions of Bragg and his physical ailments were somewhat amusing...there's really not much I can recommend about his book.
