Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It was 1865 and the Army of the Potomac was on the move — in front of Petersburg, at White Oak Road and Five Forks, outmaneuvering and outfighting a beleaguered enemy. In this extraordinary memoir, Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain of the Fifth Corps records the dramatic final acts of the Civil War: Sheridan's rise, Warren's fall, and the slow, inexorable stalking of Lee's forces across the battle-scarred countryside. With rare eloquence, Chamberlain describes the troop movements, the clash and chaos of battle, and the soul of a Union army under the confident new command of U. S. Grant. Here is an unmatched portrait of war's end — from the moment a Confederate staff officer crossed the lines bearing a white flag to the cold gray morning at Appomattox that sealed the South's defeat and sent two armies home to a nation changed forever.

Introduction by James M. McPherson, Professor of American History at Princeton University and author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Battle Cry of Freedom.

Synopsis:

An unlikely hero to the Army of the Potomac, college professor Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain led the 20th Maine Division in all the fiercest battles of the Eastern theatre, winning the Medal of Honor for his heroic leadership at Gettysburg. A brilliant, insightful, must-read for all Civil War buffs. Introduction by James McPherson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom. Period artwork, photos, and engravings. Reprint.
