Reviews - What do customers think about Forty-Six Years in the Army?
A wonderful first hand account of the Civil War and more Apr 15, 2006
Schofield was a professional soldier who served in the Seminole Indian Wars, The US Mexican War, The Civil War and led the army in the postwar years. It is a fun read, not only does Schofield tell a wonderful story he is not shy about criticizing his fellow officers especially the great generals of the Civil War. Unfortunately, the book was written before 1898 so it does not discuss his role in the Spanish American War. It is a must read for any student of the Civil War but the novice will enjoy it also.
