Adolfo Ovies migrated to the United States from Cuba in 1960 and made his new home in Connecticut. With Gettysburg just a hop, skip, and jump away, the ten-year-old Adolfo made his first trip to the battlefield. It turned out to be one of the most impactful moments of his young life, as the American Civil War bug bit him deeply. The roguish Errol Flynn’s mesmerizing portrayal of Custer in the movie They Died with Their Boots On not only captured the elusive nature of Custer’s flamboyant personality but provided Adolfo with an intriguing hero. The Boy Generals springs from this lifetime passion for the Civil War, and Custer’s role in particular. The author resides with his wife Juliet in Miami, Florida. The first volume, George Custer, Wesley Merritt, and the Cavalry of the Army of the Potomac, was published in 2021.
