Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Is it possible to do justice to such a complex war, with many different combatants (the number varying over time) and with so many different theaters, in a book of barely over 200 pages? Yes, it is, as M.S. Anderson has admirably proven. His writing is clear and crisp, he is obviously very knowledgeable and most importantly he knows exactly how to enlighten the reader in the most efficient manner.
Having already provided an extremely good and complete overview of the war itself, he even finds space within this compact book to expand on 18th century warfare, and its impact on society, in general. In summary, this is an excellent book which I would most highly recommend.
Given that there is another book (by Reed Browning) about the same war, some comparison needs to be made. I would say they are equally good - if you have a bit more time, go for Browning (he describes the battles in more detail, a part Anderson had to sacrifice), if you do not, go for this one. Well, in fact, why not read both.

Staggeringly stupid price for a kindle book 5 Feb. 2015
By D. Rimkunas - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Staggeringly stupid price for a kindle book. Who comes up with this. Anyway, the CONTENT of the book(in paper) is staggeringly good and lucidly written. Buy it for a fraction of this price.
