McCaffrey provides a social history of soldiers that goes beyond the publications on warfare that deal with strategy and tactics and the big picture. Understanding what motivated soldiers to do the things they did-whether it was enlisting in the first place, or getting drunk, or deserting from the army, or any number of other activities-helps to complete the study of how the army was able to succeed as it did and, perhaps, why it failed to accomplish even more.

Brigadier General Hiram Bronson Granbury led a brigade of Texans, fighting in the Army of Tennessee, for only nine months. Others had preceded him, and others would follow—only to be snatched away by death, transfer, or promotion. But Granbury remained the most popular of the brigade’s lengthy list of commanders—so much so that after Granbury’s death and well after the end of the Civil War, men referred to themselves as members of Granbury’s Brigade, one of Texas’ most famous fighting units.James M. McCaffrey traces the history of the brigade, from the formation of the individual regiments by Texas’ citizen-soldiers to the last days of the war, when heavy losses had reduced the brigade to a single regiment. The brigade’s involvement in early confrontations, such as the Battle of Arkansas Post, are discussed.First published in 1985, This Band of Heroes is now once again available to readers drawn to Civil War history and researchers and historians interested in Texas’ military heritage. McCaffrey supplements his text with maps, drawings, historical photographs, and appendixes that describe the flags and weapons of Granbury’s Brigade. Of particular interest to genealogists researching the period is a comprehensive list of the men who served in the brigade.

They will never be remembered outside a small band of Civil War historians but Cranbury and his Texans made up an extraordinary part of American history. This is well worth reading.

Excellent book. James M. McCaffrey weaves the facts of Granbury's Texas Brigade from the beginning of the Civil War to after. Along with his facts that are documented very well, he puts in each chapter quotes from actual troops to better illustrate from those who were there, the points of the book. It starts from the mustering in Texas, to life in the Army of Trans-Mississippi, to prison life, to life in the Army of Tennessee, including all the campaigns and battles. The leadership of the struggling Southern Army is covered well. Not only is the history of the brigade covered, but it is an excellent reference book as well. McCaffrey's work in the appendices, which are chapters in themselves, cover; The flags of Granbury's Brigade (with line drawings), the weapons of Granbury's Brigade, and the regimental rosters of the men in Granbury's Brigade. This includes the names of the troops in the Sixth Texas Infantry Regiment, Seventh Texas Infantry Regiment, Tenth Texas Infantry Regiment, Fifteenth Texas Calvary Regiment, Seventeenth Texas Calvary Regiment, Eighteenth Texas Calvary Regiment, Twenty-fourth Texas Calvary Regiment, and the Twenty-fifth Texas Calvary Regiment. There are also maps of the battles with troop movments and pictures of some members of Granbury's Brigade, including a page of weapons and another of the flag of the 17th and 18th Texas Cavalry. The best review I could give this book is that the kin of mine who fought in this unit would be proud of this work. If you are studying Civil War history, Texas troop's Civil War history, or had ancestry in this brigade, this is a very good book to add to your library. I salute the author,James M. McCaffrey, for bringing the history of Granbury's Brigade alive.

This book has been an indespensable guide to the recruitment, training, engagements and other events of my ancestor and his brother James N. and John S. Hamilton in Co. I of the Texas 18th Cavalry (dismounted). I highly recommend as an excellent account of not only Granbury's Brigade, but a great short introduction to battlefield circumstances and tactics for the "uninitiated", such as myself. A VERY readable book !
