A well researched and written book. I learned a great deal about the common soldiers and small unit morale. The interplay of the major actors is also well presented. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Dave D.

I found this to be a very wonderful book on the battle of stones river. I have read Cozzens other books. I found some them very dry and very hard to read but not this one. Read morePublished 14 months ago by jab40
