    Rebel Watchdog: The Confederate States Army Provost Guard by Kenneth J. Radley
    English | Mar. 1, 1997 | ISBN: 0807121738, 0807114685 | 360 Pages | EPUB | 831 KB

    The romantic notion of a unified Confederacy, with our gallant soldiers dedicated to the doomed Cause and homefolks sacrificing all in support, is partly true. Also true is hidden Union sentiment, sleazy opportunism, endemic indiscipline, and a tendency to straggle which the author suggests may have cost the South its independence.

    In its desperation the Confederate government instituted a sort of police state, with internal passports, watchful secret agents, and a level of militaristic intrusiveness reminiscent of other, later regimes. These measures, however necessary, robbed the fighting forces of critical manpower and alienated the populace further from their government.

    Written with unusual grace, this necessary account of that other Confederacy is thoroughly researched, with maps, photos, appendices, and index. Highly recommended for military history readers and students of the Civil War.[​IMG]
