I enjoyed your first two books on
critical battles of the Civil War and was wondering if
you plan on continuing on with this series.
V.R. (Owasso, OK)
I read "To Make Men Free" last year
and was delighted when I learned that you had written
"No Greater Courage." I enjoyed both books thoroughly
and only hope that you have further Civil War stories in
R.G. (Missoula, MT)
I never knew anything about the
battle (Fredericksburg) and now I am fascinated with it.
A.K. (Dunwoody, GA)
I just finished your book and could
not wait to tell you how much I enjoyed it.
A.B. (Marietta, GA)
I discovered TO MAKE MEN FREE to be
a very interesting story and a memorable reading
experience. The book was beautifully written.
I have just finished "No Greater
Courage" and would just like to say that it and "To Make
Men Free" are some of my most favorite examples of
historical fiction. I have always been fascinated by the
Battle of Antietam, and appreciated a book finally being
written solely about it that was a fast-paced, enjoyable
read. "No Greater Courage" was equally as well done.
Thank you for these gifts to the literary world.
never been a John Grisham fan, so I put you way ahead of
G.H. (Long Island, NY)
Your book was one of those that I
would read at night before going to bed and then wake up
the next morning excited that I could read some more
A.K. (Atlanta, GA)
I just finished reading No
Greater Courage and wanted to thank you for
having written it. I’m not a history scholar but I
think you got the characters just right. Dialogue was
believable and the feel was correct.

Until I picked up To Make Men
Free, Jeff Shaara has been my author of choice.
P.H. (Palm Beach, FL)
Thank you very much for such a
great book! I am looking very much forward to your next
book and hopefully, many more!
C.A. (St. Louis, MO)
Thanks so much for your great work.
I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
F.E. (Marietta, GA)
I've read many books on the various
US wars and frankly, To Make Men Free was about one of
the best I have ever read. Your use of dialogue and
smooth writing, made if flow so well, that I had trouble
putting it down.
book and a pleasure to read.
can truthfully tell you that your book, "To Make Men
Free," was marvelously written. I thoroughly enjoyed
ever part of it. My readings have covered many of the
famous civil war authors and now you can take your place
Lieutenant Colonel (retired)
It was one of the best reads and
most researched books I've read in a few years. Thank
you for your efforts....I look forward to your next
book. I would easily compare your work to that of
Michael Sharra or John Jakes. Well done.
novel exceeded my expectations. What a fine book you
wrote. Your thorough research is so very evident; I
never had the feeling that here was a writer who was
cleverly making things up. To Make Men Free
reads with a clear and resonant ring of authenticity.
The details of the people, the battle, and the equipment
are totally realistic as though you had been there--and
hence, the reader is there. This is an
excellent book and one that I will highly recommend to
others. I also look forward to your next creation and
will be first in line to acquire it.
D.D. (El Dorado Hills, CA)
I just finished reading, "No Greater Courage", and was
amazed at the vivid description based on actual
historical events and persons. It makes a dreary
enumeration of battles and lists come alive, as I have
not seen it before.
