Review: WITH EVERY DROP OF BLOOD by James Lincoln Collier and Christopher Collier

The War Movie Buff reviewed With Every Drop of Blood by James Lincoln Collier and Christopher Collier for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

Considering that one of the author’s is a historian, the book is surprisingly light on history. The Shenandoah Valley shows little of the devastation that four years of armies marching through it would have created. The siege of Petersburg is vaguely alluded to. The non-historical figures are fictional, but supposedly everything that happened to Johnny and Cush “happened to somebody”. That seems hard to believe. Mosby’s Rangers were active in this area, but I don’t know if they escorted any wagon train into Richmond.
