The agony and anguish of the War Between the States affected all aspects of American life. Many quarters suffered, but one in particular seemed to prosper in the postwar aftermath: the publishing industry. Though the success of Personal Memoirs by Ulysses S. Grant (as published by Mark Twain) is a clear milestone in publishing's history of bestsellers, it was only one of many highly successful Civil War memoirs penned and published by veterans in the postwar years.Never before in America had such a plethora of eyewitness accounts of a war existed, nor so many by those in a position of command.Drawing on the best of these accounts, most of them long out of print, Commanding Voices of Blue & Gray presents in a single volume the personal words of these leaders and provides an overview of the command experience in the Civil War.Selections include:General William Tecumseh Sherman on his infamous march through GeorgiaGeneral George B. McClellan on the battle of Antietam and the legendary lost order that should have tipped him off to Lee's plansGeneral George Armstrong Custer's experience of going straight from studying at West Point to the BattlefieldGeneral (CSA) James Longstreet on serving under Robert E.

When I started reading "Commanding Voices Of Blue And Grey" By Brian M. Thomson, I'll admit I wasn't exactly thrilled to read it, but after a while it started to grow on me. The book was kind of hard to read because it wasn't in a story format like I'm used to. This book didn't really have a main character through the whole book, and it was kind of like a textbook, except much more interesting. Brian M. Thomson did a terrific job turning the experiences of different people that served in the civil war into short story like scenes. This book had some good battle scenes and some very important people that turned the tide in the war. This book was extremely good about showing both sides of the story. This book helped me completely understand the civil war and it was also surprisingly good.

Absolutely wonderful book. Commanding Voices is a compilation of speeches, memoirs, and personal recollections made personally by major Civil War figures. Each section is stands alone and can be read by itself, but the sections are arranged chronologically, so that if you read the book front to back, you'll get a first-hand view of the Civil War in proper order.

This book is not meant to be any kind of novel or narrative reading. It's strictly a compilation of speeches and (partial) memoirs. They're nicely arranged, of course, and you end up with a sense of satisfaction after you've finished, but don't expect there to be a "introduction, conflict, plot, and climax." This is not a historical fiction novel.

The speeches and memoirs themselves are first rate, and some are downright entertaining. The book begins with Lincoln's Address to Congress before the Civil War and proceeds from there. Major points in the Civil War are taken from major characters involved.

A wonderful book all around. Highly recommended.
