"No Place for Little Boys," a collection of letters of a Civil War Union soldier from Carmel, Maine, edited by Melissa MacCrae and Maureen Bradford, is a compelling volume of the written testimony of a young man twenty-one years of age caught up in the war between the North and South. With an economy of words, soldier Peleg Bradford, Jr. reveals the boredom, the anguish, the cold, the danger, the longing for letters from home in his youthful insistance that underlies deeper and challenging human drama both on the war front and at home. MaCrae and Bradford, in compiling this collection of letters, have given a view of the human side of war which often goes untold. Paperback, 112 pages. Printed on recycled paper.
