All this is very well set out by Zinn, who uses contemporary letters, diaries and newspaper reports to relate the story in the words of the men who survived the campaigns. Many of these regimentals are written by amateurs and published by smaller publishers, so their editing and production values can be subpar. Not here, I found the story well written and edited and the physical quality of the book excellent, including many photos of the officers and a few enlisted men. My only quibble was with the title, the 33rd certainly had a rough start but never actually mutinied. And its combat record--it had 87 men killed or mortally wounded in a year of active combat, mostly in the Atlanta campaign--was pretty good. This is an interesting story, well told and worth reading.
