    One of my favorite time periods in American history is the Civil War. I have read and love reading books on the Civil War, from the generals to the battles.

    This is a meticulously detailed, impressively researched book on the Civil War, centering on the role of intelligence. History buffs will LOVE it, but there was a bit more than I really wanted to know about battle details. etc., so I confess I skimmed or even skipped some parts. There re a LOT of pe...
