This was a marvelous read--well-written, thoroughly researched, and rich in detail. However, without maps it was difficult to get an accurate picture in my mind of the dispositions and movements of troops. I would wish also that Walsh had included the order of battle for at least some of the engagements he describes, as the frequent reorganizations (especially in the south) made it very difficult to track specific units' whereabouts. Otherwise, I loved it and highly recommend it. ( )

For Mahon, Declan, and Daniel
First words
Our story begins in 1862, one year after the shelling of Fort Sumter, South Carolina, touched off the Civil War, with the leadership of the Southern cavalry largely in place, and its hard-riding troopers clearly besting their adversaries.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765312700, Hardcover)

Many accounts of the Civil War battles, armies, and key figures have been written over the years, but none have looked at the bloodiest war in our nation's history through the eyes of the cavalry. The horse soldiers in the Civil War are often referred to as the last of the cavaliers, men who valued their honor as much as their cause. In this sweeping saga George Walsh brings to life anew the gallant horse soldiers of the North and South, showing in dramatic detail how their raids and expeditions affected the outcome of the war and how their fortunes waxed and waned.
