About the Author

Flint Whitlock is the author of The Fighting First, Given up for Dead, The Rock of Anzio, and Soldiers on Skis.


"By focusing explicitly on the North's reaction to Confederate dreams of empire in the West, Flint Whitlock adds several new insights to historical knowledge of this increasingly well-publicized theater of the Civil War."
--Journal of Southern History

"An important new book by Denver military historian Flint Whitlock . . . this well-written, solidly researched history of Colorado's Union troops is eye-opening."
--Rocky Mountain News

"The depth of coverage for this period in Distant Bugles is one of its major strengths. This original contribution alone warrants the book's placement on the list of standard reference works for this campaign....By focusing on the Federal response to the Confederate invasion of New Mexico (and Colorado's political and military role in particular), author Flint Whitlock has made an important contribution to the literature of the campaign."
--Andrew Wagenhoffer, Civil War Books and Authors
"This volume is Civil War military history at its very best. The research, especially in primary sources, is fresh, the interpretation is informed and concise, and the writing is skillful. Follow Whitlock's engagingly crafted narrative. He introduces you to the officers, soldiers, politicians, and merchants. He tells of their competence, loyalty, opportunities, and accomplishments."
--James H. Nottage, Blue & Gray Magazine
