Meticulous....A work from the heart....Inspiring.

Amid a continuing avalanche of books about the Civil War, William C. Davis's Lincoln's Men is in a class of its own.

Dramatic, moving, informative, human to the core, this study is historical reporting at its best.

[Lincoln's Men] will be a surprise best seller.
The Orlando Sentinel
An excellent book....Davis' talent for the details that define the whole is used to great advantage here, and his ability to craft the evidence to support his premise makes the book all the more convincing.
Richard R. Roberts
The Indianapolis Star
In William C. Davis' Lincoln's Men, Abraham Lincoln rises above the sniping of revisionist historians and retains the towering image that makes him synonymous with freedom and the potential for greatness in the common man....[A] vivid portrayal of how soldiers felt about the soft-spoken "father".
San Antonio Express-News
Lincoln becomes a stronger, larger military leader through this book's exposition and research. Davis has written a much-needed chapter of Civil War and military history.
The Washington Post Book World
What matters about Lincoln's Men is that it is an overview of an always interesting subject.
Using letters written by soldiers during the Civil War, Davis offers compelling evidence of the compassion Illinois's favorite son had for the U.S. soldiers.
