Library Journal Review

Originally published in 1964 for the Texas Gulf Coast Historical Association, this slim volume tells the story of Camile Armand Jules Maries, Prince de Polignac. This son of a French prime minister was the only foreign citizen to serve as an officer in the Civil War, leading a rag-tag group of Texans for the Confederacy. This edition includes a new preface updating his story. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
