Recensioner i media

Dr. J. Boone Bartholomees Jr., Parameters The Grand Design is an excellent military study of the Civil War. It is well researched and written. It flows smoothly and keeps the reader's interest. It is critical of both sides ... and Stoker is not afraid to offer controversial interpretations.
