    A Fresh view of the Battle at Gettysburg

    Engaging story with an original plot line-not your same old Gettsburg story with the usual focus on the same characters. Hough takes a different path to the Battle through the eyes of two Northern "grunts" with adventures and viewpoints on slavery galore. You will readily identify with the many characters and the situations they face at this critical time in America's histiory.

    The Publishers Were Correct!

    It was with a certain degree of skepticism that I ordered this book. The publisher's review said it was "on a par with THE KILLER ANGELS" and as a voracious reader of all thing Gettysburg, and the author of a book for teachers about how to use THE KILLER ANGELS in the classroom, I expected to be entertained but disappointed. Not the case. The content is well researched and presented factually, the characters engaging and realistic, and the outcome satisfying. While some Civil War tomes are pedantic -- even works of fiction -- this is masterfully "readable." The style never lags or becomes cumbersome and the "dialect" is spot-on. It arrived on a Thursday and I had finished it -- for the first time -- on Saturday. The harsh realities of the soldier's life are not glossed over, nor is the horror of actual battle. When it comes out in paperback, I would seriously consider it as the "Civil War novel" on alternate years with THE KILLER ANGELS. It certainly beats out RED BADGE OF COURAGE for readability.

    Sweeping Civil War Novel

    I checked "Seen the Glory" out from the library. The Civil War is one of my favorite subjects, and it is impossible to write a novel of the war and not cover much trodden ground. The focus of the novel, fortunately, is not another retelling of the history of the war, but rather the personal struggles of the main characters. Very compelling reading.
