Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A thrilling story of the War of the Sixties.--Carroll Dulaney in The Baltimore News Post

There are no heroics and unreconstructed-rebel sighs in the book; it is a simple and vivid record of day-by-day events. . . . For those who like to read about the war as it was instead of as it might have been, Douglas, born a hundred years ago this year, is this year's man.--Ralph Thompson in The New York Times

. . . deserved to see the light long ago.--The Nation
