As a lover of maps, I especially enjoyed the maps of events that are not usually included in historical atlases, i.e., especially those about early America. These include the territories comprising Holland's and Sweden's settlements, as well as the maps surveying the Plymouth and the London companies, the exodus of those who disagreed with Puritans from the Massachusetts colony, and the 1840 resettlement of Indians in Oklahoma (by tribe).
Also singled out for praise is the Civil War map, which does well in showing the Union's progress during the war as well as their multiple (and successful) attempts to cut the South in two (first, on the Mississippi, second, through Georgia). The only criticism is for the map preceding that, "secession 1860-1861" (in which the colors for "free territories" and states that "seceded after April 14 1861" are so close they seem to be the same).
The battle maps of all of America's major wars of the 20th century (the Caribbean, Europe, the Pacific, Korea, Vietnam) are shown too, although not the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq.
