"The book is unflinching in its accounts of the deaths and injuries of so many of the Irish Americans defending this country; their legacy, which will be unfamiliar to most readers, receives an intelligent and thorough treatment. (b&w photos, maps, bibliography, index) (Nonfiction. 10-12)"
Beller (To Hold This Ground, 1995, not reviewed, etc.) returns again to the Civil War, focusing on the heroic exploits and origins of the Union army's 535-member Irish Brigade.
