I used Granbury's Texas Brigade extensively in researching for my novel about the Sixth Texas Infantry, Whittled Away. While acknowledging that Lundberg is the second historian to cover the history of Granbury's Texas Brigade in its own book, I kept going back to this new book for Lundberg's fresh perspective and the primary source quotes from soldiers. The tables of the brigade demographics and battle maps that focused on the brigade were especially valuable as well. This is one I recommend for those wanting to learn the gritty details of this group of Texans during the Civil War.

Even after prison bouts and being 'dismounted', these Texas units maintained high morale and appreciation for their (usually) loved commanders. They put their Texas "brand" on all the actions (on the field and off) in which they participated.

I have read alot of unit histories and I found this book to be a nice tribute to one of the best brigades in the army of Tennessee. I found the author to say the same thing over and over again at the end of every chapter. It becomes annoying. In terms of similar books, I like the "Orphan Brigade" and "Scythe of fire"(8th Ga) to be better, among a bunch of others. Overall it was solid tribute to the tough as nails Texans.

I like the details about battles in this book. Lundberg provides great quotes from both Union and Confederate soldiers and their experience in battle.
Lundberg slanders Confederate soldiers saying they fought for slavery. It is clear that Southern soldiers voted to free and arm the slaves for manpower. Lundberg writes a book about men that fought under Cleburne, and fails to mention how Patrick Cleburne was one of the Leading Confederate commanders for the promotion of Confederate emancipation and arming the slaves. Almost all of Patrick Cleburne subordinates approved of Emancipation too. It is clear that almost all of the writings of Confederate soldiers speak of Independence and defending their homes, and don't mention slavery .I think Lundberg should go write a book about some Northern abolitionist or a Pro slavery politician like Alexander Stephens, and try to sell it to South hating Left Wingers. It's wrong he slanders Confederate soldiers, emotionally injures Confederate descendants, and then sells a $40.00 book to the people he upsets with this book. There is another book about the Texas Granbury brigade out there.
God save the South!!

This history consolidated the many sources to provide a comprehensive account of the events that brought together this group of fighting men. I have read other accounts of many of the events and find this one very compelling.

At times the repetitive statements of the overall hypotheses of the book are just too much of the same thing making the book sound more like a grad students dissertation than an a flowing narrative.

Overall, I found the time spent reading it to be well spent.

Finally, I would note that my great great grandfather was a member of the 10th Texas Infantry and Grandbury's Texas Brigade.
