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.
