    1. Though the book is an interesting read I nevertheless had a difficult time getting in to reading it in more than short spurts. I went into reading it with the hope that it would have a great deal of information on the Kansas regiments but, unfortunately, it had only scant references. Also, the amount of information given on their actions was given almost tangently to the story of the official who happened to be involved on its affair the most. The book centers from beginning to end mainly on the [...]


    2. I'd read a bit about the pre-Civil War days (known as "Bleeding Kansas") in my home state of Kansas, but hadn't caught up with what went on during the war itself. This book provided the details. Lots of rivalries, factionalism, politicians trying to enrich themselves, and in addition to army engagements, guerilla violence going on back and forth across the KS/MO border.

    3. The language might be a bit dated but it is a solid and rather unbiased history. Now, it is a bit dense in its content so it really isn't for casual reading (not really a "fun" read) but it is a sufficient groundwork for study on the Border Wars. It is a starting point for study if you are interested in a basic, fundamental understanding of the political and military history of those years.
