My newest title Gettysburg: The True Account of Two Young Heroes in the Greatest Battle of the Civil War (Sky Pony Press, June 1, 2013) was recently reviewed by YA author Sherry Garland and Civil War scholar and author Scott Mingus:
“Gettysburg: The True Account of Two Young Heroes in the Greatest Battle of the Civil War is a good source for students doing research on the Battle of Gettysburg or for students who are interested in Civil War history. The insertion of quotes from letters and diaries brings history to life and plants the reader in the middle of the action. Although the title indicates that the emphasis is on the stories of two young citizens of Gettysburg, the book is much more than that. It includes detailed descriptions of battles, biographies of military leaders and civilians, photographs and illustrations, and a glossary of terms. Gettysburg will keep the reader's interest from the first salvo to the final reunion of aging veterans.” (Sherry Garland, author of Voices of Gettysburg )
Iain Martin has produced one of the best introductory books on the battle of Gettysburg for young readers. Readers gain a solid understanding of Gettysburg in easy-to-comprehend prose, accentuated with excellent use of appropriate maps and illustrations. A fine contribution to the education of the next generation of Civil War buffs!
