Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is richly filled with the tale of a bitter war and the true character of a man as viewed by written words of those that served under him, his own words and those of relations to him by the writings that they left. This book details battles so vibrant that you can almost see the smoke and hear the roar of the cannons and feel every grimy mile of the way. The view of the war and the man isn't always pretty, pettyness as well as fearlessness sometimes seemed to go hand in hand. This book tells of Francis Barlow's vitality from pre war, early on and his genuine "will take on the world by storm" personality as displayed by the many ways he reacted, things he said and did and reviews of his life's relationships with his family, friends and those he fought against both in the war and politically. After the war times read about how he had cannons placed in his front yard to protect his second wife and newborn son from a person threatening political retributions and how his third child was born on the anniversary of his first wife's death. An excellant read.

Format: Paperback
The only criticism i have about this book is that it doesn't go as in-depth about certain important episodes of his life like the Battles of Antietam and Gettysburg. Instead it focuses on his service during the Overland campaign, which is interesting in its own right. But i would have liked to read more about his time at Gettysburg and how history has treated him a bit unfairly for his part there. Otherwise an interesting read.

This book gave a vivid look into a very interesting character. The author was usually fair in his views and gave the detail needed to acurately portray the situations Frank was involved in. I would recommend this book to true Civil War buffs.
