Staff Review: "Union Infantryman vs Confederate Infantryman, Eastern Theater 1861-65"
Civil War buffs will enjoy this well-illustrated guide to the soldiers - Billy Yank and Johnny Reb - who waged war from 1861 to 1865. The book describes the weapons, equipment and training each received and then relates how they fared in three separate battles. The text is interesting and informative. Then too the 80-page book features many full-color maps, illustrations and battle scenes that bring the subject to life. It's an appealing, up-close-and-personal look at combat as experienced by the common Civil War soldier.
