    Great research of the war between the states. The book, though fiction, gives the reader a sense of what life was like during those difficult times. The characters are well developed.

    I have read many historical civil war books but this book made it seem so real. The characters were so well developed that I thought I knew each one of them. I could not put it down. Would you believe the book is free. It is 586 pages of good reading.

    Very realistic

    I had trouble putting the book down. Tom Mach is very knowledgable in Civil War history, and having met him, I constantly imagine that Otto Heller looks like him. I did find the timeline difficult to keep up with. I got discouraged a few times because when I picked it up, I had to leaf through the last few "time marks" to figure out When it was.

    Overall, attention to detail was amazing. Character development was wonderful. I did tire a little of being introduced to new characters, but they all served a purpose. The 'first person plural' really did add an effect that would be unseen in first person singular.

    This book was a great read. Thank you so much, Mr. Mach, for catching me at the door of Barnes & Noble. I only wish that I had read your books beforehand so that I could have spent our time in person asking you intelligent questions.
