Reviews

"Written by Ron Field and lavishly illustrated with Richard Hook's watercolors, this book is a worthy addition to the Osprey family... All in all, The Confederate Army 1861-85 (5) Tennessee and North Carolina maintains the tradition of excellence we have come to expect from Osprey, and is well worth the modest investment." --Scott Mingus, Charge! (November 5, 2007) "Ron Field's The Confederate Army 1861-65: Tennessee & North Carolina is for any collection strong in Civil War history in general and Confederate history in particular. Chapters survey uniforms worn by these volunteers, equipment, and field army experiences, with vintage black and white photos complimenting color illustrations throughout." --The California Bookwatch (January 2008) "Author Ron Field, a noted United States military expert, has studied hundreds of period letters, newspapers, and other documents to vividly describe these early troops and further documents his findings with actual photographs and individual images throughout the work. Included are plates made from original color illustrations by artist Richard Hook, based on Field's research and documentation. Together the two men portray the contrast between the colorful units of the early war and the usual 'gray and butternut' units of the later war." --North Carolina Historical Review (January 2009) "A very useful informative book for the ACW period in classic Osprey quality and a good reference for modellers with color illustrations. Highly Recommended." --Engin Kayral, Historicus Forma (November 2007) "A book that rightly belongs on the shelf of any US Civil War enthusiast and one that provides a bit more insight into what is called the first modern war. Highly recommended." --Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (January 2008)
