It is a REALLY good book for anyone interested in what soldier life is actually like. The author (Charles Johnson Post) was a pretty decent artist as well as an articulate writer and astute observe. Probably the best private soldier book of the Span Am war. His paintings have been widely published.

The old American Heritage book had something by/about him which kindled my interest in Span AM war stuff, and I now have about 6-8 ID'd Span am War trapdoors or other arms.

I sell them, but they are available elsewhere.
