This surprised us with a mapped out timeline of events of the battle. It spotlights the places, explaining who was in what area and when. Much more comprehensive than I expected. I did not give it a 5 only because it got going too fast in places, feeling like a sportscaster on GameDay. Still, very highly recommended as a first stop overview before you go to the battle fields.
