Gentlemen,

Though I am in the AotS and I currently live in CT; I am a true Rebel at Heart. I was born in Baton Rouge LA and then my Family moved to CT when I was 10. I'm now 25 and work as a Firefighter/Paramedic, but love fishing and shooting, LOL. Anyways, I am looking for a good book on my favorite General of the Civil War, John Bell Hood. Thus far, I cannot seem to find one. Any suggestions Gentlemen? Thanks!

The only book-length biography I have of John Bell Hood is "The Gallant Hood" by John P. Dyer, originally published in 1950.

Have you tried ebay? Abe Books? Google search?

Advance and Retreat by the general himself is a must read.

Still sitting on my shelf waiting to be read is Richard McMurry's John Bell Hood and the War for Southern Independence.

Lt Feathler,
Several highly rated books at Amazon on Gen Hood.
Really like Amazon as you can read a lot of user reviews,
gives you a pretty good idea if you would like a particular book, etc.
