[A] comprehensive study of life in Georgia during the Civil War . . . The account is clear, realistic, and intimate and is based upon the dominant theme of people constantly making adjustments and adaptations to a new way of life occasioned by the war. . . . [A] distinct contribution to the growing historiography of the South.
—B. H. Nelson, Journal of Negro History
With a fine grasp of Confederate history evident throughout, [Bryan] properly sticks well to Georgia. Political and military events are adequately handled, but Bryan's flair is for the social and economic.
—James W. Silver, Journal of Southern History
An excellent performance. It is organized and written with considerable skill; and its soundness is revealed by the impressive research on which it is based. Seldom does a monograph rest upon such a broad foundation of original sources. It is a model of research.
—Frank L. Owsley, Mississippi Valley Historical Review
