'George W. Nichols's aptly titled Soldier's Story is one of the classic narratives of frontline infantry service in the Army of Northern Virginia. Nichols's 61st Georgia fought in the renowned brigade commanded in turn by General Alexander r. Lawton, General John B. Gordon, and General Clement A. Evans. Nichols framed his account without sentimental hindsight; in addition to reporting great battles and dramatic moments, he told the story of two cousins killing each other in a quarrel about cooking duties and described maggot-infested corpses around Spotsylvania's Bloody Angle. An annotated roster of the 61st supplies details about Nichols's fellow veterans, some of which are not available anywhere else. Years of exhaustive research have made Professor K. S. Bohannon of the University of West Georgia the nonpareil leading authority on Georgia's Civil War troops. Bohannon's introduction adduces strong new evidence about George Nichols and his book. A thorough index also makes the work more accessible than earlier editions.'--Robert K. Krick, author of The Smoothbore Volley That Doomed the Confederacy: The Death of Stonewall Jackson and Other Chapters on the Army of Northern Virginia
