This book is really the result of the habit of keeping a diary. After being exchanged, I joined Mosby in April, 1863, two months before the organization of Company A, his first company, and was with him until the surrender. acquired while in prison still clung to me when I entered upon the active life of a ranger

Great story, well written.
There's a lesson here for writers and readers. A good story is a good story, no matter the subject as long as it is written well.
Mosby and Marion had much in common,- both were honorable men, caught is a bad situation. Marion was on the right side during the revolution and Mosby was on the losing side during the Civil War.
If you are a war buff, this is very much worth your while to read.
The content was superb, but I took off a star because of quite a few mistakes that must have been made in scanning into a file.
It appears someone had an original copy of this book, which is no longer copyrighted, and retyped it into a Kindle format. Unfortunately, the manuscript wasn't proof-read, and the number of typos, spelling errors, and grammatical mistakes makes the book difficult to read. As for the story itself, it was interesting at first, but became repetitive after a while.
This book was very interesting if you have any interest in Civil War history. I have known about Mosby for many years, but did not know that he operated in such a small area of Virginia and was so successful. An excellent history lesson on military guerilla tactics.
How did we lose the war? Not for lack of courage or gallant acts. We fought, we died, we killed and we spared. We admired the courage of our enemy and marveled at his gallantry. Our hopes and dreams of a free country, released from the Federal's grasp died like General Stonewall Jackson and General J.E. B. Stuart. If you want to read about it from the soldier's view this is the book for you.
The author obviously was a careful observer of those events where he was a participant. The narrative comes across as an honest appraisal by a first hand observer with a definite Southern view point. The things that small teams of well trained men were able to accomplish reminded me of Twentieth Century Special Forces teams.
Excellent book. Talks in great detail on every raid Mosby made, his tactics and what his life was before during and after the war. Could not of been any better! If the south had concentrated on having more raiders like Mosby the war could of turned out differently.
Excellent history by a man who was actually there. Maybe a little boring for someone not interested in American Civil War history, but it's a must for anyone who is. Mosby was an unsung hero.
