I purchased the hardback edition used and received it in excellent condition. I wanted it because it listed my gg-grandfather, his brother, and a cousin. I found that it describes actions, times, dates, locations in great detail that made it easy to understand the circumstances under which the cousin died (measles and pneumonia), how and why the brother was captured and where he spent the next several months (Ft Lookout), and how my gg-grandfather, who was then 18, came to be present at Lee's surrended at Appomattox Courthouse. For anyone interested in the Jeff Davis Artillery, it is VERY HIGHLY recommended.

A serviceable Battery history of the Jeff Davis Artillery from Selma, Alabama, that while tells a good tale of an artillery regiment in the Army of Northern Virginia, it leaves you wanting more information on the unit.
The chapter on the Battery's involvement during the fight at the Mule Shoe at Spotsylvania Court House in May of 1864, is the book's finest moment IMHO. Had to be the worst fight these men from Alabama were in during the Civil War, and in effect the outcome signaled the end of the Battery as those who survived and were not captured in the salient were shuffled to various commands in the Valley and in the Richmond area during the 1864 siege of Petersburg and its environs.
Lack of detailed footnotes are a big concern here, and the fact that the book is mainly based on the recollections of one soldier in the battery, who really did not leave behind a good retelling of the Battery's CW service. Will also add that the bibliography is not all that impressive, and feel many more places could have yielded research that would have made the story more fully developed.
That said, a good read on the Battery's service, and is an ok look at the service of these Alabamians in the CW, and is a good staring place for those who read it, and want to continue to research the unit.
