Informative and thought provoking.,

This review is from: For Cause and Comrades: Why Men Fought in the Civil War (Hardcover)
As a combat veteran my initial skepticism soon gave way to admiration for the scholarly approach taken by the author. It made me want to learn more about the cultural influences that made the Civil War combatant truly different than soldiers of a later era. Read "Band of Brothers" by Stephen Ambrose for an excellent contrast of the WWII combatant versus the Civil War warrior.
