"I've long considered Michael and Jeff Shaara's Civil War trilogy to be one of the benchmarks for Civil War historical fiction. Knoxville 1863 came very close to that mark." --Jim Chambers for Red Adept Reviews --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.
Dick Stanley has been writing short fiction, poetry and journalism since he was a child. "Knoxville 1863" is his debut novel. He is a lifelong student of the Civil War and a retired, award-winning daily newspaper staff writer in Austin, TX.

A native of Sumter, South Carolina, Dick grew up throughout the U.S., Europe and the Middle East. He is a former Army captain and an infantry combat veteran of the Vietnam war. He is also the author of "Leaving The Alamo, Texas Stories After Vietnam." His current project is a non-fiction book on the Texas origins of weather radar.
