A Savage War by Williamson Murray Jonathan gave 5 stars to A Savage War: A Military History of the Civil War (Hardcover) by Williamson Murray

Fantastic one volume military history of American Civil War. Not just descriptive and pretty well written (some additional editing wouldn't have hurt), but I really liked how opinionated they were. Bragg was an idiot, McClellan was a great administrator but otherwise completely useless, Jefferson Davis was a meddling idiot and Lincoln was an amazing politician, etc. They pulled no punches and offered plenty to back up their opinions. Great read.
