"Of the thousands of Civil War books already written and those yet to come, The Civil War's Valiant Irish is one of the few that recognizes the contributions of the Irish, Irish-Americans, and Scot-Irish whether they wore Grey or Blue. Written as narrative-history and in the third-party limited to provide the reader an opportunity to relate to their favorite characters. Whether these be two Irish twin females from County Cork, whose brother is captured and imprisoned in Andersonville. Twins who become nurses to befriend Abe Lincoln. Or how about the twin males from Cavan, one who heads south and becomes a scout for JEB Stuart while the other who joins the Irish Brigade. Or maybe the reader appreciates Phil Sheridan, JEB Stuart or Stonewall Jackson. Then there's O'Rorke and O'Kane who saved the Union at Gettysburg or Billie Mahone defending Petersburg, during the battle of The Crater. Yes, that Mahone who had empty trains ride back and forth making the Union believe thousands of Confederates were coming. When word reach his wife that he had a flesh wound, she panicked. "It must be serious for Billie hasn't an ounce of flesh on his entire body. Other books will tell about the battles, The Civil War's Valiant Irish will enable you to understand the people. Do the two sets of twins finally meet up? You're going to have to read the book to find out. For those interested in action and historical events. Over 40-battles and events are covered in Smith's unique fashion, sharing facts that few know." -Amazon.com
