Default Book Launch

If there is another spot for this I apologize, can you please move it? For any of you interested in history/american civil war/medicine/first person accounts, I had my book titled: Death, Disease, and Life at War: The Civil War Letters of Surgeon James D. Benton, 111th and 98th New York Infantry Regiments, 1862-1865 published in January 2018. I am trying to garner interest in it again in an effort to reach fifty (50) reviews on Amazon. With their current algorithm, the more reviews a book has the more people it gets seen by, hopefully equating to more sales.

Please pass the word along to anyone you think might be interested in reading it and if you have already read it, thank you, please consider leaving a quick star rating or review on Amazon. It would be greatly

I am a huge Civil War enthusiast, reading the 4 volumes entitled "The Civil War". I am in the first volume, subtitled, "The First Year". it is letters, articles, etc... and is excellent. I read one or two articles/letters per day.

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.

I get not being into fiction, but his trilogy upends Gettysburg and... Seriously, you should read them.
