36. The Last Full Measure by Jeff Shaara

I know briefly about the Civil War, so I knew how it would start and how it would end, but these books made me think quite a lot about it. I wish I read this while I was learning about the US History in high school!

With that aside, I need to read a somewhat warm/healing book or two...
