“The Fiery Trial” (2010) by Eric Foner BOOK REVIEW
Without doubt, this book contains a great deal of information about President Lincoln and the Civil War years. However, I found it to be written in a disjointed manner that made it hard to closely follow. Eric Foner would mention one position on slavery of Lincoln and another position on slavery. It was hard to follow. I recently read the book “Destiny of the Republic” by Candice Millard. This book was easy to read and easy to follow. “The Fiery Trial” did receive many VERY GOOD REVIEWS.
MY RATING: 7 out of 10
