Description
Through diaries and letters written on Civil War battlefields, in camps, and on the deathbeds of fighters from the North and South, Pulitzer Prize nominee Wiley Sword writes of the complex working of a soldier's mind coming to grips with life and death, particularly in a country at war with itself.

"Sword writes in clean and straight to the point prose. A worthy read for anyone in a position of leadership, for it lays out the rigors of sending others into harm's way, which is a brand of courage, in itself. Also, it is a must for anyone who has an interest in human nature, for those with a preconceived notion of what they think courage means."—Civil War Book Review
