I approached this book with turpitude. Following Wittenberg's work, I know this is "his regiment" and worried he might lose some of his critical eye. I feared the book would get lost in daily life, politics of regimental elections and details of horsemanship. I was unsure if cavalry regiment would have sufficient battles to make an interesting book. My fears all prove groundless.
The regiment/brigade problem is solved by always placing the regiment within the brigade. The result is a detailed account of the regiment's fighting within an account of the brigade's action. This keeps the reader in the battle without losing the contribution made by the regiment.Read more ›
As a fan and student of the 6th Pennsylvania Cavalry, I can attest to the enormous amount of research and original material that went into this book. I believe the combat experiences and hardships of this single regiment- delivered with many firsthand accounts- gives the reader the best possible insight into the life of a first class horse soldier and the war going on around him. Rush's Lancers performed at a level far above the average calvary regiment, and their full story needed to be told. I am pleased that an author with Wittenberg's skill was equal to the task.
