    1. Great read for me but I am very biased and have a personal link to the Eighth GA Inf My Great 3 grandfather served as a private through most of the war Although he wasn t mentioned by name, I felt as if I was reading his biography.


    2. The best unit history I ve personally ever read The stories that are included give this book a human feel to it The book is comprised of accounts from diaries, journals, letters home, and hometown newspapers Wilkinson does a great job of humanizing people like Berrien Zettler, and Melvin Dwinnell etc The 8th fought almost all the big Eastern Battles, suffered horrific losses, and still hasn t lost the 8th Georgia banner to this day Their account of failing to take the Wheatfield on day 2 at Gett [...]


    3. A great read for any history buff Well researched and masterfully descriptive Makes you feel as you were in the marching columns, lines of battle, trenches, and camps of these brave and gallant soldiers I look forward to standing in the same places as them as I visit their fields of battle.
