    I really have mixed feelings about this book - is it good? No, it is not. Is it informative to some degree, yes it is. By far the best chapter out of 26 is chapter 11 - "All In The Family: More Than Just A Brothers War." But one chapter does not make a book - multitudes of information placed within at most times felt like the author was attempting to impress us with his intelligence than the matter to which he was attempting to write to us in a Historical sense.There are tidbits of information p [...]

    Entertaining but too many errors.Mike Wright is a television writer. In fact, he writes a pretty entertaining book as well. But, his lack of training as a historian shows in What They Didn't Teach You About the Civil War.Some of the facts things he writes about were not taught to you because they just are not facts. In other cases, they are factual, but not truthful For example, the fact about Robert E. Lee not owning any slaves at the time of the Civil War (p. 23) is technically true - but igno [...]

    Well, this was an interesting read. Mike Wright has collected various stories, trivia and statistics on the Civil War not commonly reported in your typical books and textbooks. What makes this book even more interesting is that he looks at the common soldier, citizen, etc taking us into the realm of motivation of many of the players who aren't in the history books. Topics like desertion, ladies of the night, poorly armed and dressed soldiers, medical practices and more are covered. I've been int [...]

    Very interesting facts about the Civil War that were not taught in school. Perhaps if they did put a more human face on the wars, those of us who didn't care much for history would become "hooked" earlier. Recently, I've gotten into genealogy and discovered several ancestors who fought on both sides of the Civil War so this was a more personal read for me. Often, too, we glorify the leaders in the battles but know little about their weaknesses, their human sides. Some parts were repetitious and [...]

    A smarmy miscellany that manages to hit some interesting corners. The chapters on prostitution and Quantrill's Raiders were interesting.Completely runs out of steam by the end. Which makes sense; it's a collection of random facts in chronological order. The author is never actively wrong, but their interpretations are often odd.

    Not always the most organized writing, but really packed with details about lots of different topics surrounding the American Civil War: music, letters home, battles (of course), sex Can't wait to see what else this guy has done

    Pretty good book with learning facts in both Armies. It educates the reader in battle names from the CS Army and the U.S. Army and is interesting that the author doesn't pick a side during the reading of the book.
