Good and easy to read account of the Fifth New Hampshire Volunteers and their battles during the American Civil War. The book follows the men and their commander, Colonel Edward Cross, from the start of the war till their final battle at Gettysburg and after till the end of the war. This is a good story and I am sure any reader who enjoys a good read on the Civil War will enjoy this book.
