Detailed Minutiae of Soldier Life in the Army of Northern Virginia, 1861-1865: Eugene McCarthy
Detailed Minutiae of Soldier Life in the Army of Northern Virginia, 1861-1865 (Classic Reprint): Wm L. Sheppard
This is a very readable and great novel of real warriors vs all their enemies on all sides (theirs and ours) told via the historical stage of The Battle of the Bulge. While classic warrior vs remf, it is also a detailed look at the field soldier of that era, wonderful character studies rather than the usual WWI stereotype soldiers. From all I heard from my uncles and family friends who were ´´there´´ this rings all true, and hence it is a great listen. You will continue to listen when you should be sleeping to see what happens next. The writer is talented. His approach is unique. You have to scramble to be sure it is a novel...not someone´s real life memory. Obviously, it is a panorama of real memories. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Christy.

Among the piles of obsolete farm and household implements, haystacks, dust, and debris abandoned in her historic barn, Katie Aldridge discovered a box containing the Civil War letters of Charles Freeman Biddlecom. Painstakingly transcribing and lightly editing more than 100 letters written by the soldier to his wife during his service, Ms. Aldridge resurrected the voice of the Civil War combat soldier. The tone and character of ´´Charlie´s´´ detailed accounts of the war compelled Ms. Aldridge to find out more. From letters written throughout Grant´s Overland Campaign the listener gains an insider´s view of the war: fear, hunger, sickness, longing, and concern for those left behind as well as detailed insights about the political climate. Writing from the perspective shaped in an Upstate New York community closely linked to the abolitionist cause, woman´s suffrage, and the Quaker philosophy, the listener will learn how Charlie´s background shaped his actions and view of the war. 1.
