Read full description of the books The Life of Johnny Reb: The Common Soldier of the Confederacy:Not your ordinary historical read in that the entire narrative is derived from written correspondence mostly to those at home. As such, there's no central theme such as there would be in recounting a battle or biography. In "The Life of Johnny Reb", each chapter focuses on a separate topic such camp life, the enemy, or sweethearts left at home. The chapters are exhaustive in their comprehensiveness, maybe too much so. On a couple of occasions, I found myself muttering "enough already" and skipped on to the next chapter. All-in-all an informative and interesting read, but not riveting.
