Présentation de l'éditeur

While vacationing in the White Mountains, the author was induced by a rapt audience of boys—too young to have experienced the Civil War—to recount his adventures in the Army of the Potomac; these evening gatherings "led to the preparation of these sketches...an important contribution of warp to the majestic woof which comprises the history of the Great Civil War..." While most texts treat the war's battles, campaigns, and generals, this book attempts to comprehensively record army life of the common soldier in detail, "to permanently record information which the history of no other war has preserved with equal accuracy and completeness." Topics covered include: enlisting and raw recruits, life in tents and log huts, rations, offences and punishments, drills, foraging, inventions and devices of war, the army mule, hospitals and ambulances, army road and bridge builders, signal flags and torches, and much more. Charles W. Reed, the illustrator, did sketches in the field during this stint with the Army of the Potomac; over 200 of his drawings are included in this work. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The life of the common soldier 18 février 2016
Par Robert A. Hall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This interesting little book, written in the 1880s, was only 99 cents on Kindle. The author was an artilleryman in the Army of the Potomac. This is not an account of battles, strategy and combat, but rather everyday life for the union soldier. It details food, shelter, clothing, animals, hospitals, the different types of men in ranks, and much more of the mundane usually over-looked by historians. I was surprised how much matched my experience in the Marines a hundred years later: shelter halves, wall tents, barracks, making a coffee cup from a can and wire (I had one at Khe Sanh!), the troops' jokes, shirks, etc. I loved the more erudite language of the times: "To enter (a tent) ... of a rainy morning from the outer air, and encounter the night's accumulation of nauseating exhalations from the bodies of 12 men (differing widely in their habits of personal cleanliness) was an experience no old soldier has been known to recall with any great enthusiasm." I think veterans, history buffs and Civil war enthusiasts will all lie this book. My wife, who has been watching the TV series "Mercy Street" about a Civil War hospital, was interested to read that chapter.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Poor Reproduction of a Classic Book 11 octobre 2016
Par 99TechBooks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an extremely poor reproduction of the original book. They have stripped out over 200 illustrations and drawings which I assume, enables them to reduce the page count and offer a low cost edition. This really distracts from the text since there are many references to the removed artwork. Definitely look at another edition.I would recommend avoiding this edition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best I have read 18 octobre 2016
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

As an academic student of the war who has studied Foote, Canton, and McPherson most assiduously and a host of other biographies and memoirs this book held for me truly new and exciting information. It fills in those gaps of "the army went into winter quarters" where you were left thinking ok but, what did the private soldier do while the generals were spinning their webs and planning their campaigns. By far one of the most interesting parts of this first hand experience was a look at the oaths required to become a soldier for the Union I have not seen them in any other book I have read. Having taken the modern oath of service myself I found it interesting that even while pledging their lives to defend the Union the language of the oath itself still treated each state as a sovereign entity. So that the United States was these United States. Showing clearly that the unification that was to come after Lincoln's death and the reestablishment of home rule had not yet taken hold. This book is an eloquent and engaging look into a soldiers life. A must read for any student of the war.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 More for the Civil War and Military Buff 21 août 2016
Par Fireman721 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Hardtack is a detailed look at army life in the Army of the Potomac during the American Civil War. Even more specifically it is from an artillery soldier although he does mention often how his experiences compared to that of the cavalry and infantry. The author was a member of an artillery unit in Federal Army, a volunteer rather than a regular army man I think. The topics covered do not include battle experiences but rather the routines of army life in between combat events. Many aspects of army life are covered in some detail (e.g. enlisting, camp life and shelter, rations, offences/punishments among others); detail is the key word here. Much of this material is more briefly (and succinctly?) covered in other Civil War compendiums (e.g. authors like Bruce Catton, Shelby Foote, etc). But if your are military buff or more particularly a civil war buff (or a participant in reenacting Civil War events) this book would be for you. For the average individual with general historical interests (like me) this is probably a little much--hence the 3 star rating.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Worth the read if you want excessive detail... 21 juin 2016
Par KJWINSTON - Publié sur Amazon.com

Lots of detail that I found pretty dull for the most part... author goes on and on and on about the tents issued by the Union army, for example. He does make it clear that the bureaucratic parts of the military were alive and well then... just like they are today.
