Alcott's styie is entertaining and amusing. I've read a biography about her but not any of her actual works other than this one and am now interested enough to try "Little Women". I think this autobiogtaphical work will lend a lot to her fiction. It's always interesting to read a woman's point if view in regard to history and this was really no exception. A quick read that I'd recomnend.

The first half of this book was full of entertaaining descriptions of wartime nursing anecdotes. Then i dont know what happened. It seemed to unravel into random ramblings of washington and i lost interest. Not sure how this happened
