Mosby's Memoirs (Southern Classics Series) eBook: Mosby, John S.: : Kindle Store/5(). LibriVox recording of The Memoirs of Colonel John S. Mosby, by John S. Mosby. Read by Mark Smith.

The story is told for the most part from a limited third-person point of view that reflects Mosby’s ideas and opinions. At times, the narrative becomes first-person when Mosby writes.

Not a bad idea to follow it up with one of the good biographies out there on Mosby, just for a little more insight on the man and his activities. Jeff Wert's book is excellent as is James Ramage's. The line between memoir and autobiography is a fuzzy one, especially in this modern literary era where writers are constantly blurring the boundaries between genres to create a new, exciting one. Like an autobiography, a memoir is a narrative that reveals experiences within the author's lifetime. But there are obvious and practical differences.

This is a thin book with six stories. If these stories can be said to have a common thread, it is the people who fail to ever make a real connection.

The characters in the stories are aimless, seized by momentary ideas which fill the need for purpose and troubled by other people. All of the stories were well written, but two for me really stood Cited by: 3. The Memoirs of Colonel John S. Mosby Paperback – J by John S.
