This book is considered to be the best account of the Civil War ever written from the Confederate point of view. It is also the one most frequently cited by historians of the Western campaigns. Sam Watkins, a high private in the Army of Tennessee, brings a vividness and detail to his story unmatched in the genre.

Having read many Civil War books, this was the most eloquently written from the viewpoint of the Conderate Soldier. The reader of this book also does a great job reading. You will feel the author is speaking to you.
