Highly recommend.

If you have any interest in reading/learning about "the unkempt little man in the blue brigadier general's coat", you've GOT to read/listen to this.

And the foe of this Honorable General is The Ultimate Bad Guy...a very cruel plantation owner, slave trader and [allegedly] a Grand Wizard in the very early years of the KKK. His recruiting motto was “Come on boys if you want a heap of fun and to kill some Yankees!”

The author does go into the minutiae of the Battle of Ft Donelson, so if that gets boring, I suggest to skip ahead to around the 10 hour mark of the audio.
