Professor Woodworth delivers another top-notch book, this time on the Western Theater. He gets five cannisters for Decision in the Heartland: The Civil War in the West (Reflections on the Civil War Era).
Dr. Steven E. Woodworth is one of the best Civil War historians and authors today. His writing is clean, concise, spot on, well-researched, easy to read, and he’s not afraid to make his case regardless how controversial the topic is. It’s hard to believe Dr. Woodworth – Professor of History at Texas Christian University – is just in his mid-40s.
This is a great intro-book for people not very familiar with the Western Theater during the Civil War. You can not go wrong with this book
