Very good, easy to read biography of Joshua Chamberlain. I first became aware of him during Ken Burns documentary of the Civil War. So much more to the man than just the acts of heroism and grace displayed during the well known episodes of his campaigns during the war. Very well worth reading for anyone interested in the American Civil War and also for those who admire brilliant military minds and who wonder what it is that makes them so brilliant.
