School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-Students will be drawn to these colorful, attractive books that feature a photograph, painting, map, chart, or information box on every page. The balanced, six-chapter texts tell of battles, generals, and casualties in a straightforward manner, with no new interpretations. The volumes begin with "Words You Need to Know," but there are also definitions of terms throughout the texts. Each title has an introduction and an informative concluding section: "What Happened to Them after the War?" (Lost Cause), "A Civil War Army" (Richmond), and "A Civil War Navy" (Victory). The bibliographies list titles by noted Civil War historians. These well-organized books are welcome additions to Civil War collections.-Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt.
