The book's format is somewhat casual; it could use a good proofreading and all documentation is incorporated into the text. But what Forward the Colors (FTC) has to offer is facts, facts, facts of a "politically incorrect" yet urgently needed kind.
As a compatriot of the author's in the fight for the South's honor (though he and I have never met), I know that the book is on the mark even though it goes against everything the historical and media establishment would like us to think of Dixie and her moral record among nations. (In fact everything we "neo-Confederates" assert about this whole vast subject area is coming out in the same liberal mass media these days.)
For instance: Lincoln was no hero -- he was a tyrant and what modern thought police would call a racist and white supremacist. The "Civil War" was totally unnecessary -- it was in fact a geopolitical rape of the legally seceded South by the bloodthirsty and venal North. The history of slavery is drastically different than most people think -- blacks routinely owned and brokered other blacks in the slave trade. Other nations simply phased out their slave economics as times changed. Above all, the Confederate flag stands for decent traditional American lifeways, not "hate" or "racism." People morally concerned about such things shouldn't look too closely at the "American flag"!
There you have the basic issues -- now read their often stunning background in FTC. Other Southern advocates have written thick tomes on these subjects -- very good ones. But Mr. Puissegur manages to sum up the case trenchantly in just 82 pages. FTC is attractive, slim volume with full-color gloss cover, good for sharing with (among other people) new initiates to the Southern reality.
