Paul Angle (A Shelf Of Lincoln Books) notes 'The War Years is infinitely larger in its scope and infinitely more detailed than its predecessor. To be sure, it covers only four years of Lincoln's life, but at the same time, it covers a nation. Here is the contemporary picture and opinion of Lincoln - how he looked to thousands of people of his own time and what they said about him - sifted and cemented by a biographer perfectly qualified, by temperament and long years of research, for his task. Here also are pictures of hundreds of other actors in the great drama of a nation in civil war - men and women whose names are household words even today, many others long forgotten. Altogether, the book is an incredibly complex compendium.'
