4 star(s) History Buffs will appreciate collection

By sourdough Verified Buyer from Palmer, AK on 4/27/2009

Pros: Broad Appeal, Continually Relevant, Easy To Understand, Chronologically sorted, Deeply Informative
Describe Yourself: Casual Reader

Not much reading here. This is a drawing, photo, political cartoon, painting, etc. collection. I am a history buff, not historian, and found most pictures where new to me. A lot of portraits of people involved, politics, civilian support to war efforts, and other non-combat pictures. Well worth the price for those interested in history.
