    1. I started this book in hope that the boring historical narrative would get more interesting. No hope for this book. I read it off because I was committed, but found it to be in the end as it was in the beginning: A dry history, as though the historian were committed to writing this book with no joy in his heart. I see that my local library system has other civil war history books written by women. I will stic to those.

    2. This book is a good resource, quoting periodicals, diaries, letters and memoirs of Civil War soldiers to document women as soldiers, nurses, and spies on both sides of conflict in the Civil War.

    3. Eh. The writer gives me information without really supporting it, and the information he presents and claims is fact, I am unable to verify, so it makes me uncomfortable to use those bits of information. On the other, he does present information I can verify, but unfortunately, that same information is already easily contained in other books of the topic. The great thing though, was that he went into a lot of detail about Loretta Velazquez, since I can't find a copy of her memoir, the bad thing [...]

    4. This is one book in my large collection about imposters. The book was entertaining. The author's writing style is not stilted or academic. Like many books of its kind, it is very poorly documented. In his notes the author claims that he "did not want to be a party to reporting fiction as fact, or to help to develop a mythology about women in the Civil War" and then proceeds to do exactly that. There is only a selected bibliography. There are notes in the back of the book for each chapter but, if [...]

    5. I read this book as a source for a school project. I got most of the info I needed and appreciated the primary sources and references to many different people, not just one woman. However, what I did not like was the writing style and plot that jumps around to cover all the people. The book accomplished my goal for it which was to get information, however, I think it could have been written and formatted better.
