Format: Paperback
This book is probably the most concentrated source of material on the Great Locomotive Chase that I have ever seen, and yet is presented in a highly readable format. Mr. Bogle has provided an impressive array of data on both engines and many rare photos of them from the 19th century up until today, as well as a prodigious amount on the participants themselves. Paintings and drawings by Wilbur Kurtz graphically illustrate key events in the raid and bring to life an event that today still captures the imagination. With chapters devoted to the films made of this event and of the Medal of Honor (first awarded to the raid participants), this book is guaranteed to provide many hours of fascinating reading for not only the railfan or modeler but also the Civil War historian.

I almost did not purchase this book, as I figured, how exciting could a book of photos tell a story? I was wrong, and after reading the book, I have re-read it several times as there is a fantastic amount of historical information. This is an excellant work of combining photos and true accounts. You won't be disappointed!

Book was in excellent condition which is important. I keep a group of books on this topic to pass down to my grandchildren. Our Uncle was an Andrew's Raider.

Living in Georgia where chase took place, combined with interest in the Civil War, makes this book very interesting showing sites then and now with description of chase.

The information in this book is not correct. In fact, the author provides references that do not in any way, shape, or form reflect what he writes. Because some of Andrews Raiders were from our area of Ohio, I was very interested. When I checked out the references I was amazed and disappointed that this author was making statements that were not even born out by his "references". Not a book I could recommend as historically factual.
