In a time where political commissions and high-ranking appointments were common practice, Chamberlain declined the prestige of command and deferred instead to accept a commission at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. These men had grievances with their command over their enlistment contracts and refused to fight. Given the orders to shoot any man who did not follow his command, Chamberlain faced his first significant leadership challenge as a newly minted commander for the regiment.

Honor and Courage at Little Round Top
As a man of deep religious and moral conviction, Chamberlain placed high value on the dignity of human life and in serving the cause of preserving the Union. His unquestionable character forms the foundation for his more celebrated virtues. Chamberlain portrayed exceptional physical courage and presence of mind throughout his service in the Union Army.
Rushing toward the Confederate battle lines, bullets struck Chamberlain in the hip and groin but were unable to keep the Colonel down. In a moment of pure adrenaline and superhuman grit, Chamberlain used his own sword to stand upright as he was bleeding from his wounds, so his soldiers could see him and resist the urge to halt the advance. In that moment, Chamberlain reared his horse as a bullet went through its neck and hit Chamberlain just below the heart. Paperback , pages.

This book covers that, although it has a lot of other material, telling the story from both the Southern and the Northern viewpoints. It points out just how bad deaths due to disease were during that war. It also shows how the failure of some of Lee's subordinates to do their jobs properly basically cost him the battle. From what I've read of both Northern and Southern One of my favorite movies is Gettysburg and my favorite scene is when Chamberlain leads the charge against the attacking rebels.
From what I've read of both Northern and Southern armies that the subordinates had a lot of leeway in what they did rather than plain out obey the orders of their superiors. The chain of command sometimes seemed to be more of a wet noodle than forged out of anything strong. The book also does a good job in showing just how much suffering, blood and gore could be expected in the battles.
