Written by the mononymous Dorvall and illustrated by Philip Renne, Confederate States of America is likely planned to be the preeminent source of the greatest What If..? story in American history. What if the South had won?
The scene opens up to a graphic that most historians believe would be the eventual outcome. The USA minus the south surrounded by the South and Canada colored by the British flag. There was no quicker way to gut punch this reader than to see that map. I commend them for the shock value of the map placement but on the other hand, I was already ticked off before I got to page two.
This volume is NOT for the casual reader. It is for Civil War buffs or history fans. There is no way to really appreciate the efforts made without knowing how it is different from the history that was. That being said”¦
