A World on Fire: Britain's Crucial Role in the American Civil War
Perspective. Thanks to the recommendation of a friend, I spent many weeks enjoying the 800+ pages of Amanda Foreman’s fine history, A World on Fire: Britain's Crucial Role in the American Civil War. I knew a little about England’s involvement before reading this book, but my knowledge became greatly enhanced and enriched thanks to the perspective that Foreman brings to the subject. Her thorough research provided the basis for a writing style that draws readers into the subject. The complicated machinations in England are unraveled with precision by Foreman. Readers who love history are those most likely to enjoy reading this finely written book. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase A World on Fire from amazon.com.
