    Finally! A Historically Accurate Novel

    I recently read Thomas Eishen's book 'Courage On Little Round Top'. Tom has written an interesting Historic Novel of that battle which as we all know was a small but decisive part of the Battle of Gettysburg. This book gives a clear and concise view of the values of the time which helped shape the raw determination on both sides. In order to help the reader have a better understanding of the area where the battle took place, several maps are included within the book. Mr. Eishen brings the heroes in blue and gray to life through the fullness of each character. It is clearly evident that much research went into the writing of this novel. The book opens with the Confederates dealing with camp life and everyday problems and takes the reader through the weeks before the Battle at Gettysburg while giving the same attention to the Federal Army's activities. The real life characters of R.E. Lee, Longstreet, Johnston, Vincent, Sykes and Meade are brought to life as the author puts to paper what they may have said and thought prior to the battle. However, the reader is focused in on the two main characters consisting of the Federal's Col. Chamberlain and a Confederate Second Lieutenant named Robert Wicker whose lives are changed forever in one intense day. The battle for Little Round Top is brought to life straight from the pages of Eishen's book. A lot of thought was put into the author's portrayal of what may have been said between the everyday soldier and his friend and the worry, ideas and casual comments of his commanders. Let your mind relax from the historic text book type reading that we all usually partake of and enjoy a historically accurate novel just for the fun of it.

    Outstanding Read!

    I picked up the book a while ago, but was just too busy to dive in. However, once I started, I didn't want to put it down and finished in two sittings. Captivating! I thoroughly enjoyed it. You can tell that the author did a lot of historical research before writing his book. Definitely worth your time and money to pick up this book!

    Great for anyone

    'Courage on Littel Round Top' is a great Civil War era book for all people. It has wonderful details of war life. The imagery is great-many times you feel like you are there. All of the senses are included; sometimes you can picture what is being written about, other times you can almost smell or hear things. I'm not a huge history fan, in fact most history reads put me to sleep, but 'Courage on Little Round Top' held my attention and made me want to read more. Great book! I'm looking forward to another book by Thomas Eishen.
