The sort of story that all young school kids will love - their new teacher is great fun and has some amazing abilities that are totally unlike any other teacher. The pupils think he's so great they want to keep him quiet from everyone else but that's not easy when the head mistress is on the war path. Full of fun, brilliant characters, wacky illustrations on every page and it's quite rude too.

Co. Aytch - Erinnerungen eines Konfoderierten an den Burgerkrieg

Co. Aytch - Erinnerungen eines Konfoderierten an den Burgerkrieg

Author: Sam Watkins Illustrator: 0 Format: eBook Release Date: 11/01/2015

Als im April 1861 der Amerikanische Burgerkrieg ausbricht, ist der 21jahrige Sam Watkins aus Maury County, Tennessee einer der tausenden von Kriegsfreiwilligen, die sich zu den Armeen der Sudstaaten melden. Watkins schliet sich der "e;Co. Aytch"e; (so die lautmalerische Ausschreibung fur "e;Kompanie H"e;) des 1. Tennessee-Infanterieregiments an und folgt dem Regiment von den ersten kleinen Gefechten in Virginia bis zur vernichtenden Niederlage der konfoderierten Tennessee-Armee in der Schlacht von Nashville. In seinen im Jahre 1881 entstandenen Kriegserinnerungen schildert Watkins mit scharfem Blick fr das Erzhlenswerte und feinem Sinn fr Humor all jene furchtbaren und absurd-komischen Geschehnisse, die der Wahnsinn des Krieges fr einen Soldaten der konfderierten Tennessee-Armee bereithielt. Dabei gewhrt "e;Co. Aytch"e;, das zu Recht als Standardwerk der Brgerkriegsliteratur gilt, nicht nur einen wertvollen Einblick in die Erlebnisse und Gedanken des durchschnittlichen "e;Johnny Reb"e;, sondern ist zugleich bewegendes Zeugnis eines Versuchs der literarischen Vergangenheitsbewltigung. Ein Anhang der erhaltenen, vom Regimentskommandeur verfassten Gefechtsberichte des 1. Tennessee-Regiments zu den Schlachten von Shiloh, Perryville, Murfreesboro und Chickamauga ermglicht einen aufschlussreichen Vergleich zu den Schilderungen des unmittelbar beteiligten Soldaten.
