    My personal favorite by or about Chamberlain

    Chamberlain writes in the style of the time, which at can be a bit flowery, but if you can wade through that style of writing, this book is a very interesting look at the end of the Civil War from a man who was in the middle of the action. Chamberlain brings us his personal story of the Battle of Five Forks, which doomed Lee's defenses at Petersburg, to the final review of the Fifth Army Corps before President Lincoln at the White House. I found the story of the surrender of Lee's army especially touching.

    Honest expression of general officer experience

    Presents detail of what happened at Five Forks, Petersburg, Appomattox along with his analysis, which you can take of leave. But it is refreshing to not have the analysis mixed in with the descriptions of heated engagements. This is what he saw and believed without whitewash or political flavorings or 4 generations of rewording.

    I couldn't read many of the diaries of the time because the context is difficult to track. This was written years afterward so the author added context to the chronology.
