This was the best Civil War juvinile book I have read, and believe me, I have read many. The author goes into the subject in a way that a child could understand if they needed to read the book for a school project etc.. I found myself hooked into this book on the first sentence. The pictures added alot to the book and I thought the direct quotes from the soilder's diaries was great. This was a great book that even the youngest of children interested in this war could enjoy. There is violence in it, but as always, It can't be a Civil War book if there isn't any. ( )

This book uses first-hand accounts from boys as young as 12 who served in the Civil War. It describes their experiences in the war and provides a way for younger readers to connect to history. Text is heavy on material and experiential details, but light on dates and specific events. A good starting point for generating interest in a historical topic.

This book would do well in a 5th grade classroom when doing a lesson on the civil war especially with the vocabulary used. It would offer a challenging read and serve the purpose of sharing information regarding the Civil War. In addition, another use would be when teaching a lesson on point of view. This book offers several first hand accounts and their personal experiences of life in the Civil War.
