This is a justifiably famous account of the Civil War told by an ordinary soldier from within the ranks of a Tennessee regiment within the Confederate Army. Often quoted, it tells in a direct way, the story of an infantry company at war. In this it has much in common with similar accounts of men living and fighting together in combat irrespective of nationality, age or conflict. This is an intimate portrait of war with all its comradeship, hardship, fear, horror and humour. We accompany Watkins and his comrades of Company ''Aytch'' on campaign as he recollects, in his easy and personable style, encounters at Shiloh, Corinth, Murfreesboro, Chattanooga, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge and other bloody battlefields where they fought and died for the Confederate cause until the eventual surrender of the Southern forces. Highly recommended. Available in soft cover and cloth bound hard cover with dust jacket, head and tail bands and gold foil lettering to the spine-ideal for collectors.
