4.0 out of 5 stars Battle of the Crater, March 13, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Battle of the Crater: A Novel (Hardcover)
I've read all of the Civil War books written jointly by Gingrich and Forstchen. This book proved to be as enjoyable with realistic depictions of the Civil War battlefield(s). As a former soldier, the authors have a keen ability to hearken memories of life in the field - a rare talent.

My only criticism of the book is that it glosses over the inadequacies inherent in raw and untested troops and implies prejudice drove the unit's failures. While it certainly played a major role in the unit's treatment by veteran units, such treatment would occur to some degree for ANY green and untested unit. "PC" has no place in such an otherwise fine book.
