Through Blood and Fire adds to the understanding of this interesting young officer, whose life was ultimately cut short, and makes the volume of valuable information more widely available, as the original publication was a limited run. The mixture of battle experience and substantial, almost remarkable, staff assignments, yields a unique and interesting perspective on the war that will delight readers interested in the eastern theater.
