Book by Bundy Carol

Críticas:

"In this clear-eyed, unsentimental biography Carol Bundy introduces us to a genuine Civil War hero, Charles Russell Lowell. The transformation of an idealistic Harvard student into a brave, intelligent and tough cavalry officer is a riveting story, and Bundy writes extremely well. Her description of a cavalry charge conveys the experience better than any Civil War film, and her portrait of Boston society in the mid-nineteenth century is just as finely etched. This book is not just for Civil War buffs." --Frances Fitzgerald
"Carol Bundy's book, which I read with great interest and great pleasure, offers rich insight into a young man at war. It shows compellingly how the experience of military life and of combat changed him and his relationships to those around him. I also very much appreciated Bundy's vivid portrait of the impact of the Civil War on a northern community." --Drew Gilpin Faust, Dean, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study
""The Nature of Sacrifice" is a beautifully rendered portrait of a remarkable young man who became a still more remarkable soldier in the crucible of the American Civil War. It is also a timely reminder of the real cost of combat in any era and marks the debut of a first-class biographer." --Geoffrey C. Ward, author of "Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson"
