Donald Mang: One Nation Under God
Home Reviews Excerpts Podcasts Other Works About Author


  “Donald Mang’s novel One Nation Under God is not just a good book it is an astoundingly good book. The author has delivered one of the finest Civil War novels of the last decade or more. If you like action, romance, authentic history, and a riveting read, you will love this book. The research that went into the writing must be mind boggling. The book is never preachy, but God is present, and oh yes, you can give this book to anyone of almost any age without worry. Buy the book, you will not be sorry you did.”

  “I am pleased to report that I read the book cover to cover and must say that I enjoyed it immensely. You caught the human (and Catholic) side of Civil War life and combat in the book extremely well. I believe it will make a fine addition to our Catholic fiction collection. I’ve already spoken to the acquisitions librarian, and she’s excited about having it, too.”

(It’s 2:22 a.m.!)—a lot of things that I never knew regarding the Civil War! I know it made me think and wonder how these people survived! I also never realized the different nationalities that were involved in that war—or that the Irish were not well liked.”
