Publisher's Summary

The newest installment in the New York Times best-selling companion series to the Fox historical docudrama, Bill O'Reilly's Legends and Lies: The Civil War is a pulse-quickening account of the deadliest war in American history.

From the birth of the Republican Party to the Confederacy's first convention, the Underground Railroad to the Emancipation Proclamation, the Battle of Gettysburg to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Bill O'Reilly's Legends and Lies: The Civil War reveals the amazing and often little-known stories behind the battle lines of America's bloodiest war and debunks the myths that surround its greatest figures, including Harriet Tubman, Abraham Lincoln, General Robert E. Lee, Frederick Douglass, Stonewall Jackson, John Singleton Mosby, Ulysses S. Grant, Jefferson Davis, John Wilkes Booth, William Tecumseh Sherman, and more.

An epic struggle between the past and future, the Civil War sought to fulfill the promise that "all men are created equal". It freed an enslaved race, decimated a generation of young men, ushered in a new era of brutality in war, and created modern America. Featuring eyewitness accounts that further bring the history to life, The Civil War is the action-packed and ultimate follow-up to the best sellers The Patriots and The Real West.

    "Ok"

    Not many interesting stories beyond what the average history reader would already know. A good book for a beginner in history but not much beyond that.

    "Exceptional"

    Transforms history into a living breathing reality. This work condenses into manageable format a complex and sometimes misunderstood period of time. Explaining that there were honorable individuals on both sides of the conflict, as well as villains and cowards.

    The detail of how the war was ultimately transformed in to a fight to free slaves, from the initial goal of saving the Union is paramount.

    The chapters that center on Stonewall Jackson, William T. Sherman, U.S. Grant and Uncle Bobby Lee are immensely satisfying.

    The takeaway is that war is hell, should be avoided and that the initial patriotic romanticism will eventually give way a a rotting corpse of reality, cannot be missed.

    "History comes alive"

    Many things I thought I knew about the Civil War were corrected and in a few cases confirmed in this outstanding work of literature.

    "enjoyable read and even-handed."

    it was an enjoyable read. It was in fact difficult to put down at sometimes. often civil war books have a slant politically but this one seemed even handed.

    "Not his best."

    I've read many a books by Bill O'Reilly. In Killing Lincoln, Killing Jesus, Killing the Rising Son and Killing Patton the authors create a sense of intrigue and suspense while delivering history to the reader. I LOVED those books.
    This is my first time using audible for one of Bill's books. I found this book hard to listen too, it had the feel of a high school American history lecture.
    The only other negative for me -as before when I read Bill's books I could mentally hear Bill in my mind. (no fault here to the narrator) it just sounded weird hearing someone else read it to me.
    If your a fan of Bill O'Reilly stick to reading them.
