"Superbly written account of one of the most incredible officers to serve in the Army of the Potomac. Wallace's biography of Chamberlain was, and will continue to be, one of the most important Union biographies written in the past half century... the author's style is reminiscent of Bruce Catton and he has given us a remarkable book about a remarkable man. Soul of the Lion should be on the bookshelf of any serious student of the Civil War." Civil War News. Paper, 1960, 315pp.
