I just finished this book and found it to be a good, fast read with a fresh take on the Irish, the majority who fought outside of the Irish Brigade.
The author also has a good blog of related stories at his website: The Irish in the American Civil War
There is a link on the mobile site; pathway: news/media/the Telegraph. This post was made from my phone.
