Eye of the Storm: A Civil War Odyssey Written and Illustrated by Private Robert Knox Sneden
Edited by Charles F. Bryan, Jr., and Nelson D. Lankford
A testament in word and image, Eye of the Storm brings alive the rich, vivid microcosm of one Union soldier's experience in the great struggle that changed America forever. Eye of the Storm is one of the most important Civil War documents published since U. S. Grant's Personal Memoirs. Sneden's chronicle is one of the richest descriptions of soldier life in Virginia and the only fully illustrated eyewitness account of life inside a prisoner of war camp.
