Joshua Chamberlain

A Hero's Life and Legacy

Book Description

Joshua Chamberlain was much more than a war hero, and Pullen's thoughtful book fills out the picture of his remarkable life. An entertaining and inspiring story.
--Senator George J. Mitchell

"Pullen's book is a worthy tribute to Chamberlain's lasting legacy."
--Charles F. Herberger, Civil War Book Review

"Pullen's presentation is more complete in revealing a complicated character, without diminishing the almost mythic status he has assumed."
--Edward C. Smith, The Washington Times
