KIRKUS REVIEW

Here, in an illustrated text complete with maps, bibliography and index, is an account of what the author considers to have been the critical moment of the Civil War. It was, according to the author, the capture of New Orleans by Farragut and Porter and the subsequent control of the Mississippi that led to the ultimate denouement of the war between the states. Brilliantly written and documented, this is an obvious choice for young readers with an interest in strategy and in the history of this country.
