"Totally riveting!" Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews ..".Even though she had already embraced the idea of no longer being viewed as a woman, it was a pretense she could still back away from. It wasn't too late, yet, to call off the entire affair and creep away as a grieving daughter, left to wait on her husband's safe return from a war that had already decimated her world. She could do that still... or she could step into a realm where danger was the only certainty." And, so begins the arduous journey of Hattie Grey becoming Confederate infantryman 'Henry' Grey in October, 1862. Following the destruction of her world, in the tiny hamlet of Appleton, Tennessee, Hattie is eager for vengeance against the Yankee marauders who murdered her family and dear friends. Weary of waiting on word from her husband, Jonas, presently serving in the Confederate cavalry, several months with no news have passed since their lips last touched. Rather than wait any longer for his return, Hattie daringly disguises herself as a man and enlists in the Army of Tennessee. Hoping to find what has become of her beloved, and attain meaningful revenge, what Hattie finds instead is another woman pretending to be a male soldier.... The pair's powerful alliance is fed by courage in facing long odds of survival. Living on the edge with nothing to lose, Hattie and Lucinda Templeton, who goes by 'Louis', are as fearsome as any of their male counterparts in the infantry. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Jonas Grey returns home to find a burned-out farm, along with a makeshift grave believed to be Hattie's. Grieving under the belief that the love of his life is gone forever, Jonas aligns himself with the famed mercurial and fearless general, Bedford Forrest. The general's Elite Company of roughshod riders and former slaves provides the only succor available for Jonas to ward off tormenting memories of his beloved wife and a blissful life together that is now gone forever. As the Southern Cause's demise becomes increasingly evident, husband and wife experience near misses at being reunited along the Army of Tennessee's Hell-bent course towards eventual destruction.... Can Fate's fickle hand finally reunite Hattie and Jonas before the burdens of the war and their shared longing for each other become permanently extinguished? Or, instead, will the continued loss of those held dear during the long and bitter conflict between the North and South prove to be too much to overcome? These questions and more await answers in They Fought Like Men....

General John A. Wickham, commander of the famous 101st Airborne Division in the 1970s and subsequently Army Chief of Staff, once visited Antietam battlefield. Gazing at Bloody Lane where, in 1862, several Union assaults were brutally repulsed before they finally broke through, he marveled, "You couldn't get American soldiers today to make an attack like that." Why did those men risk certain death, over and over again, through countless bloody battles and four long, awful years ? Why did the conventional wisdom -- that soldiers become increasingly cynical and disillusioned as war progresses -- not hold true in the Civil War? It is to this question--why did they fight--that James McPherson, America's preeminent Civil War historian, now turns his attention. He shows that, contrary to what many scholars believe, the soldiers of the Civil War remained powerfully convinced of the ideals for which they fought throughout the conflict. Motivated by duty and honor, and often by religious faith, these men wrote frequently of their firm belief in the cause for which they fought: the principles of liberty, freedom, justice, and patriotism. Soldiers on both sides harkened back to the Founding Fathers, and the ideals of the American Revolution. They fought to defend their country, either the Union--"the best Government ever made"--or the Confederate states, where their very homes and families were under siege. And they fought to defend their honor and manhood. "I should not lik to go home with the name of a couhard," one Massachusetts private wrote, and another private from Ohio said, "My wife would sooner hear of my death than my disgrace." Even after three years of bloody battles, more than half of the Union soldiers reenlisted voluntarily. "While duty calls me here and my country demands my services I should be willing to make the sacrifice," one man wrote to his protesting parents. And another soldier said simply, "I still love my country." McPherson draws on more than 25,000 letters and nearly 250 private diaries from men on both sides. Civil War soldiers were among the most literate soldiers in history, and most of them wrote home frequently, as it was the only way for them to keep in touch with homes that many of them had left for the first time in their lives. Significantly, their letters were also uncensored by military authorities, and are uniquely frank in their criticism and detailed in their reports of marches and battles, relations between officers and men, political debates, and morale. For Cause and Comrades lets these soldiers tell their own stories in their own words to create an account that is both deeply moving and far truer than most books on war. Battle Cry of Freedom, McPherson's Pulitzer Prize-winning account of the Civil War, was a national bestseller that Hugh Brogan, in The New York Times, called "history writing of the highest order." For Cause and Comrades deserves similar accolades, as McPherson's masterful prose and the soldiers' own words combine to create both an important book on an often-overlooked aspect of our bloody Civil War, and a powerfully moving account of the men who fought it.

I. The hero is born into an unhappy family; he has nightmares but loves the girl next door; a dog kills his pet duck; he is left alone on the big river, where a man had drowned; he frequents the upholstery repair shop of his grandpa Bill, the home of Bill and Gram, and the great house on the river; he falls into a trance in his father’s room beside the river; he learns to fish and to kill his catch; an evil aunt ruins his sister Tari’s playhouse; he loves little girls too much and too often; he has a vision while fishing for crawdads in the San Lorenzo River; he and his brother Seth learn of their father’s death, smothered in a pyramid of sand. II. Now ten years old, he takes up entomology; his disturbed mother’s pet pigeon is crushed in a door; he learns the truth about his philandering father; in high school he has a new friend in Frankie Lee; he murders prairie dogs with his father’s gun; he meets the mysterious Johnny Martin, a poet, in love with the hero; he faints in class while presenting the story of Leopold and Loeb. III. He wins a prize and meets Eisenhower; he works as forest firefighter and sees a man burn to death; Johnny Martin shows him around Berkeley. IV. At Berkeley he suffers from herpes simplex and meets strange characters; a Los Angelino seduces him; Frankie Lee joins him a sordid apartment; he falls in love and travels to Mexico, where he loses his way; he goes to Harvard but doesn’t like it and flees to Europe, hoping to marry the girl he loves, who is studying in Spain. V. When the girl rejects him, he takes a boat from Barcelona to Athens, where he lives near a whorehouse in Piraeus; he sells his blood to survive; he climbs Mount Olympus in a snow storm; he hitchhikes across Algeria just after the war of independence; he takes drugs in Tangiers. VI. Back in Berkeley, he finds Frankie Lee and visits old friends, including Johnny Martin; he has night visions; he meets Isis; he locates his brother, who has gone mad; he consorts with drug dealers and enjoys their products; the streets are alive with revolution; he insults his professors and he meets a woman who claims to be from another planet; he lives with hippies, some of them mad; he meets a strange man in a bourgeois house; he has a shattering vision in which he turns into light and briefly leaves the world. VII. With Isis he moves to the mountains in Arizona, where he raises a family; he corresponds with Frankie Lee, living in LA; he eats peyote and remembers the day his father died; he climbs in the wilderness and converses about his early youth; he travels in remote areas; with friends he climbs a volcano in the night and slipping on a glacier almost dies; he returns to his hometown to find his grandmother incapacitated, abused, and near death; his grandfather recalls his brother’s madness; he undergoes a minor operation, after which he suspects Isis of infidelity.
