The first chapter is pretty tedious. Once he gets into the details of his role in the Appomattox campaign, he excels. Decent info on the battle experience of the two regiments of his brigade, and of course the V Corps.. I don't believe there are excessive mention of other soldiers except in the chapter about the last review at DC, as stated by one reviewer. This book shows more realism about the actual conditions of combat, than any other book that I ever read. He describes some gory details of battle, like tying off the vein of an injured soldier like it is a common place event, which it may have been.

He does quote Shakespeare, which I really like. Chamberlain is an excellent writer from the late 1800's, and I like his light sarcasm. Actually humorous at times. Not thrilled with the formatting of the book though, no index and not enough maps. ( )

The only problem I had with the books were the immense number of details. Every person of importance is named for each battle and the review at the end of the war. Each battle is in detail, though not as meticulous detail as I have heard some reports are.

This is a readable account by one of the best beloved generals of the Civil War, Joshua Chamberlain, whose existence went into virtual obscurity upon is death until he was rediscovered decades later. It is his personal account for the last few weeks of the Civil War. ( )

Sorry to disagree with the previous reviewer, but this book is not about Gettysburg. Chamberlain wrote a series of books about the Civil War. This is the last in the series. It covers the battl Five Forks, the surrender of Lee's army, and the final reviews of the armies. It is a remarkably moving and beautiful book. Chamberlan assisted Grant when he and Lee met at Appomatox He also arranged for the ceremony in which the rebel army surrenderred their arms. Chamberlain made a lot of history and lived to write about it. This book is a must for any Civil War buff. It brought tears to my eyes more than once. ( )

This is a brief but thrilling account of Chamberlain's stand on Little Round Top at the Battle of Gettysburg. It is a very quick and informative read, an important primary source for those interested in Civil War history. ( )

It was a dreamy camp along the lines investing Petersburg in the winter following the "all-summer" campaign of 1864,-that never-to-be-forgotten, most dismal of years.
