Editorial Reviews

Filmmaker - Ken Burns
Once again, Mike Pride has brought the past alive with this insightful and moving reminder that the best history is more often than not a bottom-up history. We see a "universe of battle" through the eyes of people who might have been our great-grandfathers. This is history firing on all cylinders.
Civil War Institute, Gettysburg College - Peter Carmichael
No historian has been more imaginative than Mike Pride in weaving together the intricate relationships between home front and the army. Beautifully written and brilliantly researched, compelling and important.
