Editorial Reviews

Author: "Calamity at Chancellorsville" - Dr. Mathew Lively
It's no easy task to accurately depict individual personalities, let alone write believable fictional conversations and interactions between them; nonetheless, the author excels at both.
Author of Chancellorsville: Crossroads of Fire and the Dark - Prof. Chris Mackowski
"Thomas' story is highly readable and highly entertaining. [Jeff] Shaara could use a lesson on pacing from Thomas."
