This is one of my favorite books, and it has been ever since I first read it, probably over 20 years ago. Jeff's journey as a soldier during the Civil War seems somewhat improbable, insofar as to have all of those things happen to one man is improbable. However, as I understand it, the author interviewed a number of Civil War veterans and combined many of their experiences into the life of a single protagonist.

It's a wonderful story and a wonderful view into the lives of the average soldiers during America's Civil War.
