Here is a historically accurate cloudy Memorial Day, not a Hollywood sunny Fourth of July study of war. Brothers Henry and Willie Cole, and their cousin Asher are the focus of this tale of the last Civil War battles of the Fighting 149th Bucktails. We are drawn sore feet and weary hart full into their world of boredom, love, all too human superiors, and occasional failures punctuated by the cannon blast of blood lust and fear of battle. These are men and boys stuck in a war that needs to happen but is hell to fight. A worthy follow up the The Bucktail Brothers of the Fighting 149th and the original Bucktail series. ( )
