    if you are looking for analysis on race and class or even just a useful footnote, you will not find it here. At its best, it is a droll military history. At its worst, it becomes perilously close to romanticizing the confederacy and erasing what the civil war was about. Mercifully short though.

Sadly, what could have proved a brief if detailed study, instead offered little more than a rambling eulogy doused in a sentimental litany of lace-curtain Irish-America.

Sadly, what could have proved a brief if detailed study, instead offered little more than a rambling eulogy doused in a sentimental litany of lace-curtain Irish-America. I am proud of all of my Irish military heritage - warts and all. But too often the problems of dealing with drunken and ill-disciplined soldiers are ignored in favour of perpetuating the nonsense of a Celtic south whose military prowess owed more than has ever been admitted to the 30-odd thousand Irish-born in its armies' ranks. As an Irish soldier I was pretty disappointed by the book, which truly lacks any scholarly merit.
