Eye opening and engaging. Acker gives the reader a real feel for what the Civil War was like. A well written novel, historically accurate but not dry like a history book. Well developed characters that keep you invested and wanting more. Has you rooting for the main character.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The author has researched the civil war extensively and the story, the characters day-to-day lives comes across as authentic. It's fictional but based on actual historical figures and battles. The writing is hard and savagely strips away any illusion the reader may have about war and its effects on just surviving, whether as a soldier, leader, their families and homes. Recommended.

A thumping good read. Early on, I found myself caring about the characters' fates. The appropriate use of vernacular lends authenticity. Acker has a way of turning an ordinary phrase into the unusual. Interweaving some tenets of Transcendentalism give the story depth and richness. Highly recommended.
