An excellent first person narrative from the point of view of a Captain in the Army of the Potomac. Whereas most civil war histories are written from an omnicient thrid person view which focuses on battles and strategy; here we get a chance to see what the war was like to a lowly footsoldier. What comes off most is the incredible monotony, privitation, and uncertainty which dominated the soldier's life. One also gets an insight to how magical the simplest pleasures (ie. coffee) can be to one who has been long without. It has been said that war consists of long periods of boredom interspaced with moments of sheer terror. This book brings that adage home in a journal written on the spot by a man who went on to become one of the great 19th century historians.
