James M. McPherson, author of BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM; THE CIVIL WAR ERA — “This moving story of a fictional soldier in a real Mississippi regiment in the real Civil War was inspired by the experiences of the author’s great grandfather. The novel’s descriptions of combat are realistic and powerful; the portrayal of wounds, death, and destruction are stark enough to turn the reader into a confirmed pacifist. Although I have read many books on the Civil War, I learned more about the psychological impact of the war on the men who fought it than from anything else I ever read.”
