I've read both of the authors' Bucktail adventures, and thoroughly enjoyed both. While many Civil War stories rely too heavily on cannon fire and gun powder, these stories highlight the carefully nuanced development of friendships forged in hard times. Much of the Bucktails' real adventure happens in camp, where the soldiers' personal challenges and character growth take center stage. That's not to say Civil War buffs won't be satisfied. The battle scenes are compelling. And the daily life of the everyday soldier--too often ignored in Civil War fiction¿come to life here, providing a clear and accurate picture of the deprivations and nonsense that make war hell for the foot soldier. I'm looking forward to the next installment of the Bucktail story, and hope the series catches on.
