The story of John Singleton Mosby as told by Kevin H. Siepel should be read by anyone interested in the Civil War. For the serious student of the conflict, however, it should be mandatory. Siepel has captured one of the true heroes of that terrible war and presents him as never before seen. Siepel has put together a clear picture of the lawyer, fighter and statesman. It is good reading, even for those who aren't particularly interested in the Civil War.
