One can easily say that the definitive work on Joshua Chamberlain has now been done.--James Robertson, Richmond Times-Dispatch "An example of history as it should be written.

This book is an excellent biography of Joshua Chamberlain's contribution to the Civil War. It says little about his post-war experiences, but then, the subtitle is "Joshua Chamberlain and the American Civil War" so I would not expect it to deal much with his post war experiences. In the end I was saddened to see such valor and courage go to waste, as the nation basically turned its back on the issue of freedom and left the ex-slaves without defender or advocate, but that is the subject for another book.
