2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing account of the American civil war, 3 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book did not provide the engaging and comprehensive account of the American civil war I had sought. I came to the subject knowing very little. I think this book assumed a certain familiarity with key figures and locations. Whilst there was some effort to name the commanders of major military units additional names were introduced into the narrative without explanation and I found myself rereading earlier pages to try and work out who's who. The campaign and battle descriptions would have benefited from some maps, I had great difficulty in visualising the spatial relationships from the text. My final gripe was with the occasional grammatical error which suggests insufficient proof reading. This book has inspired me to read further on this fascinating and tragic period of history.

This review is from: Smiley's People (Kindle Edition)
A brilliant end to the Tinker, Tailor series. The Cold War is brought to life again and the tension never lets up.
