I wouldn't have wanted to be Kautz's clerk; I'll bet he was a real fiend on filing. (Didn't some one young officer run off with Kautz's wife?) Perhaps the good general should have paid more attention to love and less to paper. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811703991, Hardcover)

This was the Civil War soldier's and NCO's "how-to" guide to military duties in garrison and in the field. It covers of all ranks and services: infantry, cavalry, artillery, ordnance, quartermaster, signal, saddlers, hospital stewards, cooks, bands, as well as spies, pickets, expressmen, special forces. There is much quaint yet practical advice on survival, cooking and nutrition, pay, punishment, prisoners of war, and many long-extinct soldier skills. It contains the Articles of War used during the Civil War.
