Mosby's Men is John H. Alexander's eyewitness account of his days with Mosby's Confederate Raiders, a small band of about 400 rough riders who chased 40,000 Union soldiers during the height of the Civil War. Riding 50 miles a day with very little rest, Mosby's Men perfected the "skedaddle", a baffling, highly effective guerrilla tactic that enabled them to make sneak attacks, evade capture, and constantly traverse enemy territory. The Raiders gained great acclaim in the Confederacy for their success, and ultimately forced the Union soldiers to within 50 miles of their capital. Alexander's detailed, down-to-earth, disarming account makes Mosby's Men an essential memoir about the Civil War and some of its most daring soldiers.
Norman Dietz delivers an exciting performance in Mosby’s Men, John H. Alexander’s firsthand account of the Civil War from the perspective of a Confederate soldier.
Alexander served under John S. Mosby, who was a Virginia lawyer turned cavalry commander during the war. The members of the 43rd Battalion Virginia Cavalry, "Mosby’s Men", were known for their sudden strikes on their Union enemies. Alexander writes admiringly of Mosby and describes in great detail their tactics and various missions.
Dietz’s delivery rises in intensity and speed during this audiobook’s many thrilling moments.
"Dietz brings our the color and adventure of Alexander's well-written book." (The Express)
