    1. It has good information. Not easy to follow at times. However given the lack of material on the 7 Days, a must read.


    2. This is a very detailed history (ala Peter Cozzens) of the Seven Days Battles, something that I think had not been written before. I don't think this was as good as Stephen Sears' broader "To The Gates Of Richmond" (which also covers the Peninsular Campaign as a whole) nor as quite as good as Cozzens' books. There are quite a few maps, but I feel they are not good. Overall, an okay book.


    3. Seven Days of battle, and I can't seem to read this sucker in less than I have no idea. Don't blame the book. I suspect my nonfiction spree is clogging my ability to process anything more difficult than "The Cat in the Hat" right now!


    4. This was a very good book on this Civil War battle. Unfortunately, after reading the first 100 pages or so, it just got too detailed for me to finish.
