Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was a bit worried about getting this book because of the price and it turning out to be a dud. This is a great buy! This covers more then just union artillery training and tactics. This covers how the AoP evolved it's use of artillery and it's command of artillery. How Rhode Island turned out the best cannoneers during the Civil War and how this group of young boys grew up and became some of the bravest and toughest of them. It is also very easy to understand the story Mr Grandchamp is telling. He does not stray to far from the lives of the cannoneers of battery G when he puts the context of what is happening around them in the AoP during the war. He only show some favoritism for the generals from RI. I do think a new reader who whats to get into the Civil War readings, this should be one of their 1st books.
