      Just completed this book old style narrative history which gives you a feel for all the characters.

Once you get used to this technique it brings you into the armies though i didnt understand some of the american references particularty the political ones.Good solid account of the bloody fi [...]

      I was amazed at the amount of information this book has on one important Civil War battle--Chickamauga. I visited that battle site and relied on this book as well as others to give me a vivid description of this battle so I could write about it in my novel entitled "All Parts Together" My only suggestion for Glenn Tucker in improving this book would be to include a synopsis of the campaign somewhere in the book.

      Tucker's style of writing makes him one of my favorite Civil War historians. This and his book on Gettysburg are probably the two best Civil War histories I've read. Thorough and accurate work in covering these battles.
