Guillermo's Thoughts:

This is quite an uneven entry in the Interactive History Adventure series. While not as boring as Civil War Secret Agent in the Time Machine series, I still found most of the book quite uninvolving. Matt Doeden's talent for designing military-based adventures only shows up in a few places, and the good moments do not quite raise the book above 'mediocre' level. Don't go out of your way to read this book.
