Review:

...a unique contribution...--Alain D. Satin, Hebrew Union College "The Jewish Veteran "

Having served as the VII Corps Jewish Chaplain during Operation Desert Shield-Desert Storm, I have come to appreciate more acutely the role of the Jewish soldier in combat operations. Mel Young's portrait... has brought to light an important segment of American Jewish history....--Kenneth J. Leinwand, Chaplain (Major) U.S. Army, VII Corps Jewish Chaplain "The Jewish Veteran "

We can read Mel Young's volume as a way of honoring those Jewish dead who answered the call of North and South and made the ultimate sacrifice.--American Jewish Archives Journal

An engrossing study of Jewish Americana. Useful for both the circulating and reference collections.--AJL Newsletter

...an indispensable researcher's tool, and a'must' for the library of anyone who is interested in Jewish American history, or is a Civil War 'Buff'.--Michigan Jewish History

The author has done a commendable job of researching the topic. This volume can be recommended to Jewish Civil War buffs and students of Jewish history.--Civil War News

Young has truly said Kaddish in his own way by reverently retelling the often forgotten stories of the Jews who died fighting for the North and South.--Civil War News

The importance of this book lies in the fact that it fills a gap in the history of American Jews....The book also features personal letters as well as official testimonies. Thus, Young has compiled a record that adds to materials documenting human aspects of the Civil War.--CHOICE

...thoughtful, sensitive and fascinating accounts....--St. Louis Jewish Light

...told lovingly, reverently....Included within Young's study are letters, battle reports, maps, newspaper accounts, photographs of gravestones and individuals, military service records and Jewish Medal of Honor winners. A masterful attempt is made to frame each death in the general circumstances of the war....--America's Civil War

From the Back Cover:

The story of the Jewish soldiers of the North and South whose deaths--(killed, mortally wounded or died of disease or other causes) occurred during The Civil War, 1861-1865.
