Sam's book is not a diary or a series of letters but a memory of what he experienced many years after the war.  I love Sam's writing because of his use of words.  He has a way of describing the things that happened .  He has made me laugh at some of his tales and cry at others.  He isn't telling the big picture, as he says you want that see the generals.  He is only telling his part in the big picture, what he experienced.  He was quoted in the Civil War series I believe because he had such a way with words that he is very quotable.
