This book is considered to be the best account of the Civil War ever written from the Confederate point of view. It is also the one most frequently cited by historians of the Western campaigns. Sam Watkins, a high private in the Army of Tennessee, brings a vividness and detail to his story unmatched in the genre.More
Sam Watkins' lively account of being a soldier in the Confederate Army was first published in 1881 as a series of columns in his hometown newspaper in Columbia, Tennessee, and persists to this day as one of the most widely beloved accounts of a soldier's experience of the Civil War. Watkins has a keen wit and observation - as well as knack for storytelling - reminiscent of Mark Twain. Dan Calhoun's performance has a wonderfully anachronistic character, which allows the listener to feel as if it is indeed Watkins who is recounting the remarkable chronicles found in Company Aytch.
"A memoir of staggering significance, wit, and beauty." (Ken Burns)
