Kenneth C. Davis is a marvelous historian and the author of the wildly popular ‘Don’t Know Much‘ book series. He’s turned his well-trained eye to the military and, specifically, though it should come at no surprise based on the title, American war history. As he always does, he uncovers many facts we may not have previously known and weaves a thread of commonality across six important battles. What emerges is an interesting portrait of our nation at war, and maybe something about ourselves as well. You will certainly want to read this, his latest work.
