Praise for Quantrill's War

"Quantrill's War emerges as a salute to turn-of-the-century conventional wisdom and psycho-historical analysis." --The Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Schultz extends his catalog of richly detailed, well-written histories with this life of Quantrill, who emerges less as a psychopath than as a soldier bent on bringing total destruction to his enemy." --Kirkus Reviews

"Schultz retells Quantrill's life with dramatic flourish--his re-creation of the Lawrence, Kansas, massacre and of the pursuit of Quantrill by scattered Union forces is particularly exciting. Readers interested in the dark side of the Civil War will find much to ponder."
--Publishers Weekly
