Can’t Put It Down!!!
By Scott on June 10, 2014
If you’re hungry for history, especially the Civil War, The Wrong Colored Shirt will definitely satisfy your appetite. Once you start reading about Wells’ fast and furious journey to manhood you won’t be able to put the book down. The attention to detail that Mr. Winstead writes is so good that if you were able to read it with your eyes closed, it would seem like you were there. The battle scenes that he paints are so vivid you can almost smell the gunpowder. AWESOME!!!! Can’t wait to see the movie!

A well written and an action packed page turner. I wish could have gone on a couple more hundred pages. A real enjoyable read.
