    I wish this book had been available when I lived in the Northeast. It's not 100% complete, but that would be hard to achieve given the scope of the conflict. Neatly sized to fit into a glove compartment or a backpack. Detailed descriptions of the battles, with special sections on leaders, weapons and tactics. It is a bit dated at this point; recommend double checking park and museum information before going. I wish this book had been available when I lived in the Northeast.
