About the Author:

Military historian Flint Whitlock is the author of The Fighting First, Given Up for Dead, The Rock of Anzio, and Soldiers on Skis.

Review:

"... [N]icely illustrated with fifty-three photographs, many of them never before published. [Whitlock] is an exceptionally good writer and anyone interested in the Civil War wil enjoy what he has to say." -- Western Historical Quarterly Western Historical Quarterly Western Historical Quarterly

"By focusing explicitly on the North's reaction to Confederate dreams of empire in the West, Flint Whitlock adds several new insights to historical knowledge of this increasingly well-publicized theater of the Civil War." -- Journal of Southern History

"While opening the floor to debate on the Southwest's importance, Distant Bugles, Distant Drums is worthwhile reading just for its cast of characters ...an equally wild and woolly read for Civil War or Western buff alike." -- Jon Guttman, Civil War Times, May 2007

"Whitlock's treatment of this much-neglected segment of Civil War history is laudable for any number of reasons, not the least of which is his fully comprehensive understanding and depiction of what might be best described as a comic opera with tragic overtones." -- Clay Reynolds, Texas Books in Review
