Created originally as a supplement to the April 2005 National Geographic magazine, this map shows battlesites with numerous call-outs describing specific battles as well as dates and battle routes. Insets highlight ''Turning Points of the War,'' ''Battle for the Capitals,'' and battle death tolls.
It is a start in the study of the Civil War in order to gain a geographic view of the battles. Of course it is impossible to cover very much of the action in just one map of everything. I expected too much.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
