Review by

How many characters can you put in a book. It drove me crazy as it took so long for anything to happen. es there might be many different themes you could explore, but don't do all of them! The shift of the great war into America nd a new civial war was an interesting theme. The portrayal of battle and historical attitudes was done well, but it went everywhere and was very frustrating.
