    Donald E. Markle, a former Defense Department intelligence analyst and author of the book "Spies & Spymasters of the Civil War," said that was true of many of the men who joined cavalry units in the Civil War. The cavalrymen, Markle says, "tended to be smarter and gutsier than many other soldiers, which is one reason they did spy duty.". All the ways women directly engaged in the War Between the States—from posing as male soldiers, to seducing secrets out of politicians and generals, to operating as spies, couriers, and diplomats—are explored in Abbott’s engrossing narrative nonfiction book Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy: Four Women Undercover in the Civil War, which comes out in paperback .
