I will put aside some $$ in the future to purchase your volume as it is very intriguing.

I have visited quite a number of battlefields, read numerous accounts, and different histories. When one truly understands what the average soldier went through it is truly amazing.

I know it is historical fiction, but Newt Ginrich's 3 volumes, beginning with "Gettysburg," give a good graphic depiction of what the carnage of battle was truly like.
Thank you for your interest in my work. I completely agree with your assessment regarding the average soldier. It is quite fascinating what they went through on a daily basis. I never got into fiction but I have heard others say that his books were pretty good.
