RaveThe Wall Street Journal... a superb account of both military leadership and soldierly warfare ... Mr. Miller has done a prodigious amount of research (the back matter runs to nearly 150 pages), and among the book’s many strengths are the quotations he provides from diaries and letters ... Books like Vicksburg are exactly what Thomas Hardy had in mind when he wrote that \'war makes rattling good history.\'

RaveThe Wall Street JournalIt is a fascinating story, and Mr. Benton tells it both expertly and entertainingly ... There is probably no grand life lesson to be learned from the fate of the dinosaurs, but Mr. Benton’s deeply engaging book instructively shows us, yet again, how advances in technology have converted mere speculation into testable science.
PositiveThe Wall Street JournalIf Mr. Hager’s well-written and engaging chronicle is any guide, there may be unforeseen downsides to such developments, but the upside will certainly be worth celebrating.
MixedThe Wall Street JournalThough Winter War concentrates on the interregnum period, Mr. Rauchway ranges far and wide ... isn’t always reliable in its details ... One could say that Hoover has suffered enough in history’s perfect hindsight and deserves, in this matter and others, a fairer treatment.
