Review: Bayonet! Forward: My Civil War Reminiscences

User Review  - Mike - Goodreads

I am not that slow of a reader, just haven't been updating. I am a fan of Chamberlain, and am biased. However if you want to read of both Civil War and post Civil War writings of a great 19th century hero this is your book. Read full review

An amazing look at the Civil War right from the guy who was there in the thick of it. Why isn't Joshua Chamberlain more well known? This man is an inspiration. Read full review
