This is the book for you if you are looking for a quick reference on the Battle of Bentonville. It lacks the detail needed by a serious researcher of the battle, but it is certainly worth having as a quick reference guide.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rebel Sons of Erin, December 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rebel Sons of Erin (Paperback)
The "Rebel Sons of Erin" is a highly partisan history of the 10th Tennessee Infantry (Confederate). The 10th Tennessee was a hard luck regiment that was surrendered at Fort Donelson and lost many of its members who either swore an oath of allegiance to the Union or joined one of two Illinois (Union) regiments while in prison. The regiment was never the same after its exchange. A number of Union prisoners of war were recruited to join the 10th from Camp Lawton and Andersonville prison late in the Civil War, but were captured at Egypt Station before they could join the main body of the 10th. Most of the captured galvanized Yankees changed sides again and joined the 5th US Infantry. A second attempt to recruit Union prisoners of war for the regiment from Andersonville also ended in failure. Only a handful of soldiers from the 10th (Confederate) surrendered with Johnston's Army at the end of the war, with most lost to capture, changing sides, disease, and death or injury in battle. Gleeson assembled a good bit of information about the 10th, but ignored much of its less glamorous history while writing this book.


The Galvanized Yankees

5.0 out of 5 stars The Galvanized Yankees, December 15, 2013

This review is from: The Galvanized Yankees (Paperback)
"The Galvanized Yankees" remains the only definitive history of Confederate prisoners of war who changed sides and joined the Union Army. The regiments formed of former Confederates were sent to the western frontier to protect settlers and others from attacks by Indian tribes. Dee Brown includes one chapter on former Union prisoners of war who joined the Confederate Army, and that chapter remains the most extensive and accurate discussion of the men who joined Confederate units and, in some cases, ended up in battle against Union forces.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Man's Land, December 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Haney's "No Man's Land" is an incredible action novel that is well worth reading. Haney's unique gift as a story teller clearly comes through in this book, and "No Man's Land" ranks right up there with the best of Clancy.

Confederate Colonels: A Biographical Register (SHADES OF BLUE & GRAY)
by Bruce S. Allardice
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $44.00
20 used & new from $41.90

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of "Confederate Colonels: A Biographical Register", December 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book presents short bibliographies of Confederate officers who held the rank of Colonel during the Civil War. The bibliographies are useful starting points for more in depth research on those individuals. As might be expected, not all Confederate Colonels are covered in the book, but it does represent an impressive amount of original research.

This book explores dissent in the South during the Civil War. It is well research and well written. I can use this book to inform my own research.
